Johnny Depp has called Tim Burton crazy for casting him in new movie musical SWEENEY TODD, because the heartthrob star can't sing. Depp is currently filming his role as the 'Demon Barber of Fleet Street' in a movie version of Stephen Sondheim's Broadway musical, due for release next January (08). But the actor confesses he has a terrible singing voice. He says, "Tim took a risk when he asked me to play Sweeney Todd because neither he nor I knew if I could sing when I accepted it. "I went into the recording studio with a friend of mine to see if I could do it. My singing's not unlike the mating call of a rutting stag. It's a strange sound, but I haven't been fired yet."

That man is SO good at anything else, so a little rusty singing out of key... Well, nice to know you can't do EVERYTHING perfectly, Johnny. I'd love to hear you sing and no matter how bad you may think it sounds I'm sure we'll all love it :o)

Must not be that bad if he did it already and the tracks have been laid down, filming's done, and he wasn't fired. Besides that, he had to audition and Sondheim approved, soooooooooooo. I don't care though. Anything that man does is totally fine with me! I'll see it, I'll watch him, I'll hear him, and I'll love it!!
