What did Ricky Gervais say about Johnny Depp? That he'd wear whatever Tim Burton asked him to? This is a new still from Dark Shadows, in which Depp plays a vampire named Barnabas. Obviously the flick — the tone of which is supposed to be like a "weird soap opera" — is going to be creepy, but Depp looks less like a vampire and more like a goth club kid who's been hanging out with SNL character Stefan. New York's hottest club is Eww, where they have everything: Peter Pan zombies, eyeliner made from ashes, foxes on trampolines. Beware, RuPaul's Drag Race contestant Sharon Needles — you have a copycat.





Wasn't there a short-lived series called "Dark Shadows" in the early 1990's? Is this a nod to that? Also, who else sat pretzel-legged with their face in their hands watching Dark Shadows every week? I can't be the only one.
