    I find Hugh Jackman can play a more diverse cast of characters than Depp.
    Just my opinion though.

    Jackman. I think hes a more talented actor than Depp and has the ability to play a wider variety of roles. And between those two, I would rather have him play my fav character.

    Well, in a fight, I’m going to say Hugh, have you seen the guns he’s packing?

    As for acting, I don’t really know. Both have played characters I really enjoy and I love both of their acting styles.

    And Kudos to Jackman for being another great Aussie export.

  9. Matapiojo March 16, 2009 at 11:19 am -      #9

    I find Depp to be a superior performer.

    HOWEVER…

    Jackman is Wolverine AND Van Helsing. He could easily take Depp out.

    Jackman FTW!

    Awards won by Hugh Jackman: Three (Outstanding Actor in a Musical, Emmy and Tony award).

    Nominated for Golden Globe: Best Actor in a Musical.

    – – –

    Awards won by Johnny Depp: Eleven (Caesar Lifetime achievement, Golden Globe, Irish Film and Television Awards, Screen Actors Guild Award and seven best actor awards).

    Nominated for…Well I think it’s best that I show you direcly:

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Johnny_Depp_awards_and_nominations

    – – –

    On an objective basis, Johnny Depp takes this on the basis of popularity and peer recognition alone, without taking into account their respective filmographies (Depp’s 48 Vs. Jackman’s 33) and box office pull (JD’s: $2,012,733,027 Vs. HJ’s $1,261,594,063).

  15. kano547 March 19, 2009 at 5:02 pm -      #15

    that may be true but i liked jackmans movies better than depps

  16. L-W March 19, 2009 at 9:04 pm -      #16

    Thus I titled it an *Objective* comparison, not subjective.

    *Tut, tut*

    Whilst Hugh Jackman has many talents-Johnny Depp is an intensely deeply amazingly talented performer….a true artist. Hugh Jackman can play a lot of diffferent characters. Yes, but so does JD. No one is ever going to be as GORGEOUS as sexy as JD….sorry ‘sexiest’ man.

    Johnny Depp is so great.. He is one of my two main favorites that I will always love and fight for

  20. Based God December 8, 2010 at 9:00 pm -      #20

    Hugh jackman is a aussie I hate aussie’s and wolverine is not 6’4 he’s 5’3

  21. Negative Zero December 8, 2010 at 9:06 pm -      #21

    Interesting fact.

    Hugh Jackman was origionally planned to play Jack Sparrow in Curse of the Black Pearl instead of Johnny Depp.

  22. Rorschach December 8, 2010 at 9:10 pm -      #22

    “I hate aussie’s ”
    I wonder why?

  23. Sparks December 8, 2010 at 9:13 pm -      #23

    Jack Sparrow is one of my all-time favorite fictional characters, so Depp gets some respect for that. But as a whole I don’t really like much of his films, plus he is/was an emo cutter.

    Jackman seems like a pretty cool fellow though, so points to the New Zealander.

  24. Negative Zero December 8, 2010 at 9:13 pm -      #24

    “I wonder why?”
    Mabey its because they wressle alligators and pick the alligator meat out of their teeth with their bowie knives. Never mess with an Austrailian.

  25. Negative Zero December 8, 2010 at 9:17 pm -      #25

    “Jack Sparrow is one of my all-time favorite fictional characters”
    Barbossa was pretty good to though right?

    “plus he is/was an emo cutter.”
    Really? Well he just lost a LOT of my respect then. Or are you just talking about that scissor guy?

    lol how wrong can you be about Australia.

  27. Sparks December 8, 2010 at 9:22 pm -      #27

    “Barbossa was pretty good to though right?”

    Yeah, Geoffry Rush has had some pretty cool acting roles too — he was an old-timey sniper in that new ninja-western type movie that just came out.

    “Or are you just talking about that scissor guy?”

    No, he has scars from where he cut himself. I don’t believe he still does it (although i don’t particularly follow his personal life.) But he likened the self-inflicted scars as “events of his life” similar to how a sailor gets tattoos in different countries and what not. Just a little emo shit thing to say lol.

  28. Soldier's Shadow December 8, 2010 at 9:25 pm -      #28

    I’m going with Depp because I loved Public Enemies.

  29. Based God December 8, 2010 at 9:27 pm -      #29

    “I wonder why”

    They single handedly humiliated, subjugated, and destroyed their indigenous peoples.
    They offer nothing to the world in terms of technical or scientific advancement – not even a good sun bloc!! And ofcourse i hate that homo mooselini

  30. Negative Zero December 8, 2010 at 9:29 pm -      #30

    “lol how wrong can you be about Australia.”
    It was just a joke. Calm down.

    “No, he has scars from where he cut himself. I don’t believe he still does it (although i don’t particularly follow his personal life.)

    Well….at least Jack Sparrow himself isn’t like that. Have you heared that they are working on a new Pirates of the Carrabian trilogy? The next movie’s subtitle is “On Stranger Tides” or something like that. William Turner also won’t be in it.

  31. Sparks December 8, 2010 at 9:34 pm -      #31

    “They offer nothing to the world in terms of technical or scientific advancement ”

    I heard they were able to use a boomarang in space.

    So… in the real world, they invented space-weaponry.

    Or maybe that was New Zealand, the two are pretty much a geographical and cultural mirror of one another so I get confused.

    “The next movie’s subtitle is “On Stranger Tides” or something like that. William Turner also won’t be in it.”

    Yeah I know, and I’m glad they’re getting Bloom out of it. I don’t believe Knightley is returning either, but I haven’t looked into anything on the film in awhile.

  32. Eric Gigliotti December 8, 2010 at 9:34 pm -      #32

    Johnny Depp has made some pretty cool characters… and Hugh Jackman is a faggot. So Depp ftw.

  33. Based God December 8, 2010 at 9:37 pm -      #33

    “I heard they were able to use a boomarang in space.”

    Lol

    “Yeah I know, and I’m glad they’re getting Bloom out of it. I don’t believe Knightley is returning either, but I haven’t looked into anything on the film in awhile.”
    I actually hated Elizabeth Swan as a character. She was just some stuck up fancy chick and then ALL OF A SUDDEN she thinks shes some kind of super pirate or something when she had NO idea what she was getting into.

  35. Sparks December 8, 2010 at 9:40 pm -      #35

    Plus her bra cup preceded the alphabet.

    But that has nothing to do with the character, i’m just a shallow jerk.

  36. Negative Zero December 8, 2010 at 9:43 pm -      #36

    “i’m just a shallow jerk.”
    Eh, who isn’t nowadays? S’all good.

  37. Negative Zero December 8, 2010 at 9:45 pm -      #37

    @Sparks
    Do you know if Geoffry Rush is returning to play Barbossa in the next movie? That scene where he was wedding Will and Elizabeth while fighting those dudes off was just to funny.

  38. Sparks December 8, 2010 at 9:48 pm -      #38

    Like I said, I haven’t looked into the future of the series recently, but last I heard it was going to focus more on Barbosa and Jack.

    Hopefully he will though, as cool as Jack is, he can’t balance out an entire new cast lol.

  39. Negative Zero December 8, 2010 at 9:55 pm -      #39

    “Like I said, I haven’t looked into the future of the series recently, but last I heard it was going to focus more on Barbosa and Jack.”
    Thats what the ending to At World’s End seemed to imply. I’ll bet that the plot will be about Jack and Barbossa racing eachother to the Fountain of Youth while Jack tries to get his ship back from Barbossa….what do you think?

  40. Mage Man December 8, 2010 at 10:49 pm -      #40

    As much as I love Depp, I think Jackman can just play a mans role alot better, more action then Depp I think, and you just can’t go past an action packed flick with him in it and not want to watch it. Where Depp is heading more towards the comedy side of it, don’t get me wrong, he has had some awesome roles and plays them just as awesomely.

  41. Eric Gigliotti December 8, 2010 at 11:11 pm -      #41

    “Plus her bra cup preceded the alphabet.”

    LOL a very good way of putting it.

  42. The Geek Lord December 14, 2010 at 7:35 pm -      #42

    Johnny, all the way. Hugh is an awesome Wolverine, and his ability to mask his Australian accent so well is really cool. But I’ve seen more Depp movies.
    @Negative Zero
    Oh God really?

  43. Negative Zero December 14, 2010 at 7:44 pm -      #43

    “@Negative Zero
    Oh God really?”
    Oh God really what?

  44. Jwlynas December 14, 2010 at 7:58 pm -      #44

    Johnny in every way, barring one. He is the absolutely dullest man in the world when it comes to interviews.

  45. Negative Zero December 14, 2010 at 8:01 pm -      #45

    If this were an actual fight though then Hugh would kick Johnny’s ass.

  46. Sparks December 14, 2010 at 8:08 pm -      #46

    Not because Hugh is a badass (like Bruce Willis)

    just because Depp is a cakeass. But he’s an alright actor none the less.
