Depp is currently portraying Boston, Massachusetts gang boss Whitey Bulger in new film Black Mass and he also famously portrayed John Dillinger (Public Enemies), J.M. Barrie (Finding Neverland) , Ed Wood (Ed Wood), George Jung (Blow), Inspector Frederick Abberline (From Hell) and Joseph D. Pistone (Donnie Brasco) on the big screen.
