If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Johnny Depp must be one of the most flattered actors in Hollywood. Depp is famous for playing idiosyncratic characters who boast intricate, unique hairstyles and costumes – making him catnip for movie fans who like to play dress-up.
On Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, Depp got up-close and personal with a few of the dudes who make their living as professional Depp impersonators. Well, sort of – Kimmel’s cousin Sal gathered the impersonators outside the show’s studio. Depp then had a chance to speak with them from the safe distance of Jimmy’s set. Though the Oscar nominee was almost disappointingly chilled out when chatting with his doppelgangers – the guy is so laid back that he’s practically horizontal – their interaction did yield a few gems… like when Depp admitted that he’s never seen Edward Scissorhands. Gasp!

Fun fact: In this interview, Depp appears to be wearing the same outfit he had on during Ellen yesterday. Maybe he decided against a costume change so that his imitators could shine?
