Johnny Depp finally discusses stepping in for Heath Ledger in ‘Imaginarium’

Like many of Terry Gilliam's films "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" almost didn't make it to the screen, but as fate would hand it three premier actors stepped in when the production was its lowest point.

Heath Ledger's tragic passing in the middle of filming could have forced "Parnassus" to remain unfinished or a shadow of what it was supposed to be, but thanks to a break in the shooting schedule and a lucky fantastical story element other actors could step in for the departed Oscar winner. Those gentleman turned out to be Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law.  Out of respect for Ledger, Gilliam and perhaps because they did the work for scale, all three men have stayed away from promoting or publicizing "Parnassus," but after a strong limited release opening on Christmas, two of them have spoken out for the first time about their involvement
