Johnny Depp is getting knocked around for appearing drunk on stage at the CBS broadcast, Hollywood Film Awards. Depp was chosen to honor Hollywood agent Shep Gordon, the subject of Mike Myers’ new documentary Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon. Gordon was the agent for Alice Cooper and Blondie, among other musicians.
Depp stumbled with the microphone stand (which was enormous, in his defense), kept his head low and mumbled about “not being very good at these things.” His performance, whether he was really drunk or just pretending, reminded us of the late great Dean Martin, an actor who capitalized on his laid-back persona and making snappy if slurred remarks about fellow celebrities during his roasts.
