The show is being made into a movie, and it’s shooting now for a March 2012 release date.
But what’s really important to Depp is his family.
The 47-year-old actor has two children with his long-time girlfriend model Vanessa Paradis: 11-year-old daughter Lily-Rose and 9-year-old son Jack. The couple have been together since 1998.
Depp insists that his family is his number one priority, and says: “Vanessa and the kids are the only thing I need to be happy. Everything else isn’t priority.”
He is also grateful for his ongoing movie success because it means he doesn’t have to worry about providing for them. “I don’t think I have to worry about being able to feed my family and myself.”
Aside from the upcoming 21 Jump Street cameo, you can catch Depp on the big screen again in his role as Captain Jack Sparrow for the fourth time in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
