Johnny Depp might have said that he wouldn’t get back to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean for “$300 million and a million alpacas”, yet he got back in the skin of the character briefly. However, to fans’ disappointment, it wasn’t on a movie set. Johnny briefly delighted a few fans as he moved back the clock and turned into Captain Jack outside the Virginia courthouse, where he is right now fighting a multimillion-dollar defamation trial against ex-wife, actor Amber Heard.
As a fan shouts, “You’ll always be the Captain Jack Sparrow,” Johnny quickly channels his iconic character and answers in the pirate’s distinctive accent and voice, “He’s still around somewhere I’ve seen him now and again.” As the fans cheer at Johnny’s impromptu transformation, the actor goes on in his Jack Sparrow style, “Shows up now and again.” As a fan reminds Johnny to not forget Jack’s jar of dirt (a reference from the movies), Johnny smiles and says, “Love you guys. Thank you, so much!”
