Johnny Depp Disses Twilight

Move over, R-Patz, there’s a new vampire in town and he’s not stepping down!

Johnny Depp is portraying a vampire in his latest film, Dark Shadows, and he has some sage advice for Twilight‘s Robert Pattinson!

“There’s room for two vampires on this block — as long as he remembers I am the Alpha Vampire,” Johnny told Us Weekly.

This is the eighth film the 48-year old actor is collaborating on with his longtime friend, Tim Burton.

“I think it was during Sweeney Todd where I just blurted out in mid conversation, ‘God, we should do a vampire movie together where you actually have a vampire that looks like a vampire,'” Johnny revealed to Movie Line.

Unlike “vampires that look like underwear models,” Johnny envisioned his undead character donning ghostly make-up and fangs. The actor said he’s always been fascinated by monsters and the erotic nature of bloodsuckers adds “a darkness, this mystery, this intrigue.”

When asked about the types of roles he still wants to take on, Johnny revealed, “I think there are still more boxes to be ticked. But, this was a big one for me.”

Are YOU going to see Dark Shadows?
