I guess vocals are a good way to earn money, probably allows for greater flexibility. But will I see it? Nope. I never saw the one about the garden dwarfs -- weird subject that.
What I want is that all the rumors buzzing about are TRUE and he WILL DEFINITELY BE in Waiting for the Barbarians. What a great role that would be. The only possible substantiation I have that he will be in this movie is the video I have attached below. Mark Rylance, who is confirmed with Waiting For The Barbarian, is being interviewed about the September 11th London premiere of the documentary Down To Earth (he is on the board of the charity who sponsored the film). If you wait until the screaming last minute (roughly 8:45 minutes) you will hear Rylance talk about his upcoming movie in which he will be "tortured by Johnny Depp." The film will shoot in Morocco.
So guys, what say you? Is this enough of a confirmation?
