Actor Sacha Baron Cohen feels Johnny Depp is the “only” actor who can pull off the character of Mad Hatter, a fictional super villain, with conviction on the silver screen. Depp will be seen playing the Mad Hatter in Disney’s forthcoming film Alice Through the Looking Glass, which will release in India on Friday.
“There are not many people who could pull off the character of the Hatter that is that extreme, over the top and flamboyant, so Johnny is probably the only person that can pull that off and make it still believable and not absurd. That’s his brilliance, really,” Cohen said in a statement.
Starring Mia Wasikowska, Time Burton, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland had taken the audience on a delightful journey across wonderland. Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass is set three years after the events of Alice in Wonderland.
