Hitfix's Drew McWeeny had the pleasure of spending an hour with Terry Gilliam at Comic-Con recently and managed to get him to share some honest career advice for his friend Johnny Depp: "He'd better start making some good films ... I'm not a great fan of Public Enemies, because I think [Michael Mann's] a fucking extraordinary filmmaker, but personally I didn't think Johnny had enough room to act ... He's making so much money. There was a piece in the Huffington Post today [Presumably he means this one]. It's a letter saying 'All right, come on, we all love you, but stop.' ... It's like, 'Come on. You've got the power to make some really good films happen. Why are you doing this shit?'" We guess he means instead of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote? [Hitfix]
