Johnny Depp is, allegedly, struggling to find a job in Hollywood following his recent court hearing.
As such, Johnny Depp has decided to seek his friend Robert Downey Jr.’s help.
Robert Downey Jr. offers Johnny Depp a job
According to National Enquirer, Depp is begging Downey Jr. for a job. And the latter thinks that he deserves to be given another break. Downey Jr., reportedly, offered Depp a role in Sherlock Holmes 3.
“Johnny and Robert have a very special 30-year relationship that dates back to both of their days as eccentric Hollywood hell-raisers,” the source said.
Robert Downey Jr. understands Johnny Depp’s struggles
The tabloid also claimed that Downey Jr. has decided to help Depp because he knows what it feels like to beat the odds after he was also written off.
Years ago, reports swirled that the actor was written off his character in Ally McBeal. However, Downey Jr. said that this wasn’t because he was fired from the TV show.
The decision to write off Downey Jr’s character happened following his drug charges.
While speaking with Entertainment Weekly, executive producer Bill D’Elia said that the actor wasn’t fired from the show. And there’s always a possibility for his character to return.
“Right now what we have to focus on is the show, and what Robert has to focus on is getting well. We don’t want one to influence the other. I can tell you honestly that with Robert Downey Jr. we made the right decisions every step of the way. Where it fell apart had to do with the unknown. Obviously, we’re all saddened by this and wished for a better ending, but you can’t predict these things. You can only have faith in talent,” he said.
Will Johnny Depp return to ‘Pirates of the Caribbean?’
Johnny Depp was also written out of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise after he was accused of domestic violence. Even though he wasn’t convicted following Amber Heard’s allegations, the actor’s reputation was tarnished.
Following his recent court appearances, more negative and shocking information about Depp was released. And according to sources, this information will make it difficult for the actor to land roles on television and the big screen.
But National Enquirer is confident that Depp won’t have a hard time as long as he has Downey Jr’s support.
“Robert thinks Johnny deserves the same chance to redeem himself that he had,” the source said.
As of late, there is still no confirmation that Johnny Depp will appear in Sherlock Holmes 3.
