Johnny Depp made EW's Power List

Age 40

As ''Pirates of the Caribbean'''s tipsy Captain Jack, Depp proved he could cash in without selling out. Now, one $300 million box office pull later (his newfound clout even helped ''Once Upon a Time in Mexico'' rake in $55 million), he's contemplating a ''Pirates'' sequel. Meanwhile, he'll play the man behind Peter Pan in J.M. Barrie's ''Neverland,'' a stalked writer in ''Secret Window,'' and -- sweetest of all -- possibly the lead in Tim Burton's eagerly awaited ''Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory'' remake (a role he beat Jim Carrey to).
