Spending most of the second half of his career playing a pirate, Johnny Depp is rarely seen outside of his ubiquitous Pirates of the Carribean character. So, it’s very refreshing to see one of the best character actors alive take the opposite route of his usual acting spectrum.

Black Mass features Depp as the larger than life Boston mob boss, Whitey Bulger…who later became an FBI informant.

Black Mass hit theaters September 18, 2015.
