So a few weeks back Jack White went and got his barnet cut and had some proclaiming he didn’t look like Johnny Depp anymore. Many had drawn comparsions with the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, star of late but what they failed to realise is White has just entered the Johnny Depp Cry-Baby phase.

Cry-Baby was released in 1990 and set Johnny Depp in the 1950s as a bad boy who falls for a good girl only to go and cause a whole mess of trouble. Will this herald a new musical direction for Jack? Maybe he’ll form a biker gang. Regardless it still looks pretty shit cool.

Only recently discovering North by Northwest, he longs for a train journey with a beautiful blond.
