I always loved Red Buttons. He was great in movies like "The Longest Day" (" Loud and Clear, sir!" and the Poseidon Adventure, but he was also great on all the TV shows I remember from when I was a kid. He'd be on Johnny Carson, Dean Martin, even Laugh-in. A funny, Funny guy, especially for an old guy. The Times did a nice Obit for him, and it's worth reading.
When Depp is on, he is awesome. After mailing it in for the last Pirates movies, it is refreshing seeing him actually CARE about a part. The "just sayin'" scene is awesome. I hope the rest of the movie is just as good.
