    In 1999, Depp teamed up with Tim Burton once again. This time for Sleepy Hollow.
    True to Burton's style, it had elements of horror and fantasy put together in one film.

    The major turn in Depp's life came in 2003 when he starred as Captain Jack Sparrow in the first film of
    the Pirates of the Caribbean series. His eccentric look and acting won him many fans across the world.
    He has starred in all the sequels in the series. The role also got Johnny Depp his first Oscar nomination.

    Also in 2004, Depp acted opposite Kate Winslet in Finding Neverland, a story broadly inspired by the tale of Peter Pan.
    Both Winslet and Depp bagged Oscar-nominations for their performances, but neither won the award.

    Another career defining role for Depp came in 2005 when he played Willy Wonka in Tim Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
    The film was hugely successful and Depp's weird look (referred to as the Willy-Wonka-meets-Michael-Jackson look)
    thrilled one and all. Depp was nominated for a Golden Globe for this role.

    In 2007, Depp teamed up with Tim Burton yet again, and this time for something far more sinister.
    He played the title character in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street . While the film didn't win much acclaim,
    Depp managed an Oscar nomination for his performance even though he ultimately didn't win the award.
    While he lost the Oscar, he did win the Golden Globe for this role.

    Among his upcoming projects, Depp is concentrating on fantasy. His most widely anticipated role is in Alice in Wonderland
    where he is playing the Mad-Hatter (this picture). He is also among the star-studded cast of
    The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, which is Heath Ledger's last film
