First look of Johnny Depp’s transformation into almost bald headed Whitey Bulger for Black Mass has been released!

Johnny Depp has long been known for his dedication to the role and extraordinary physical transformations in movies. Some of his most notable transformations include the role of Edward Scissor-hands, Captain Jack Sparrow, Willy Wonka, Mad Hatter etc. and the list goes on.

It seems Depp is about to add another memorable role to his portfolio where he looks nothing like his original self as Whitey Bulger. 

Depp can be seen in full character mode as Whitey Bulger the Irish Mobster. EW has posted first look of  Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger in Black Mass. Depp can be seen wearing a leather jacket, donning sun glasses while holding a gun.

What is really surprising about the commitment of Depp’s new appearance is the way his head is shown to be going bald to better resemble Whitey Bulger himself. The scene shows one of the most infamous incidents where Whitey Bulger murdered a man in a parking lot in broad daylight. 

Depp recently finished filming for the film ‘Black Mass’ where he plays the role of Whitey Bulger the Irish gangster. ‘Black Mass’ is based on the 2001 novel of the same name by the author Scott Cooper which details the story of the unholy alliance between he FBI and the Irish Mob. 

Whitey Bulger was the most famous and feared Boston gangster, who also happened to be the brother of a State Senator who will be portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch. Bulger was an FBI informant for 10 years and throughout the years he spread fear in Boston with his ruthlessness.

The film ‘Black Mass’ will be a sort of a biopic which details how Whitey destroyed the Italian mafia by joining hands with the FBI and received immunity. The film ‘Black Mass’ will also star Sienna Miller, Kevin Bacon, and Dakota Johnson with a release date of 18th September 2015.
