Johnny Depp’s Disguised Dial-in to BlogTalkRadio (and Obscure Artistic Request)

Johnny Depp may be one of the world’s biggest box-office draws, but that doesn’t mean he’s above supporting the work of lesser-known artists—if only as his alter-ego.

Earlier this month on Red Velvet Media, host Holly Stephey welcomed L.A.-based painter Xany Rudoff, whose most recent work, the Icon Series, transforms vintage record albums and rock icons using techniques developed by Renaissance icon painters like El Greco, Michael Damaskenos and Theophanes the Cretan.

Heath Ledger Was No Joker on Set, Says Fellow Oscar Nominee: ‘He’d Just Hug Everybody’

If the inside scoop on Heath Ledger is correct (and we have no reason to believe it’s not), the late actor was not only a gentleman but a teddy bear to boot.

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” says John of the affable relationships Heath (above, as The Joker) had with staffers on The Dark Knight.

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” says John of the affable relationships Heath (above) had with production staffers.

This week on BlogTalkRadio’s Movie Geeks United, host Jamey DuVall talks with makeup artist John Caglione Jr., who created Heath’s now-iconic Joker face in The Dark Knight.

John – a veteran of such hit flicks as The Departed, Donnie Brasco and Heat – tells Jamey he has never worked with an actor quite so genuinely affectionate as Heath.

“When Heath would come in in the morning – sometimes really early, like 5:30 – the first thing he’d do would be to hug every- body in the trailer.  Big bear hugs to everybody – all the makeup and hair people, and all the actors,” says John, who, like Heath, was nominated for an Oscar for his work on the film.

“Then we’d do the makeup – took about an hour and a half – and he’d work a 12-hour day. And no matter how banged-up or bruised Heath was after that long day, after we’d take off the last drop of makeup he’d just hug everybody in the trailer before he left.”

The Dark Knight was Heath’s last completed film role, though when he passed away 13 months ago from an accidental overdose of pre- scription drugs, he has in the middle of shooting The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.

To complete that flick, which is scheduled for release this summer, director Terry Gilliam cast Colin Farrell, Jude Law and Johnny Depp in different incarnations of Heath’s character.
