Johnny Depp has said that Captain Jack Sparrow was a combination of whom?
Johnny said that Captain Jack was a combination of Keith
Richards of the Rolling Stones and Disney's Pepe Le Pew. LOL Johnny
said he wasn't worried about Pepe's reaction, but wasn't sure about
Keith's reaction. Richards went on to appear in the "Pirates"
movies and played Sparrow's father, Captain Teague.
Johnny Depp has said, "Jack Sparrow is a weird combination of Keith Richard and Pepe le Pew."
I think most people would agree that Captain Jack Sparrow is Depp's most recognizable character to date. Had Depp not accepted the part of Sparrow I can't imagine any other actor playing him. Prior to Sparrow, Edward Scissorhands was probably Depp's most recognized role. Honorable mention:Sweeney Todd.
