I am going to see this film in a theater. The story of Boston Crime Boss James Whitey Bulgar comes to terrifying life in Black Mass which is in theaters now.
Johnny Depp's transformation in this role is stunning..he really looks like Whitey Bulgar. Perhaps an Oscar Nomination may be in the works for Johnny....
Question: How did Whitey Bulger evade capture for so many years?
While his brother Bill (Benedict Cumberbatch) remains a powerful leader in the Massachusetts Senate, Irish hoodlum James "Whitey" Bulger (Johnny Depp) continues to pursue a life of crime in 1970s Boston.
Approached by FBI agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton), the lawman convinces Whitey to help the agency fight the Italian mob. As their unholy alliance spirals out of control, Bulger increases his power and evades capture to become one of the most dangerous gangsters in U.S. history.
Depp transforms into notorious Boston gangster Whitey Bulger for the crime drama, which comes from Crazy Heart director Scott Cooper.
We were just writing about scary Todd Jesse Plemons starring in Fargo Season 2 and here he is in Black Mass...
