Hey, they’re making a movie about the Doors with a soulful rebel-type actor who was born about 40-plus years ago! No, not that one. I’m talking about When You’re Strange, the upcoming Doors documentary that Johnny Depp is reportedly going to narrate. Now, it arguably would have been way cooler if Val Kilmer had reprised his famous Jim Morrison portrayal as this movie’s narrator – but old Val is rumored to be contemplating a run for governor of NewMexico, so you’ve gotta assume he was just too busy. Oh well. Anyway, as someone who’s honestly never been the world’s biggest Doors fan but does think Johnny Depp is a very hip guy, I’m somewhat more interested in seeing this documentary now. How about you? Does this make you more or less likely to seek out When You’re Strange?
