    God, I love James Dean. He makes my heart hurt in the best possible way.

    he’s beautiful, isn’t he?

    Yes.

    This is a pretty ob-vious ob-servation, but I am reminded yet again of the kinship between James Dean and Johnny Depp. It really comes across in interviews such as this.

    I agree. I mentioned the same to Amy. I also saw Paul Newman, and if you’ll forgive me, perhaps a pinch of Brad Pitt.

    Really? Johnny Depp? I love me some Johnny (yes, Lucy, I am for serious), but I don’t see any resemblance to James Dean except that they’re both, well, . . . guys.

    Watching this clip just made me realize, though, that my friend MT looks like James Dean’s curly-black-haired brother. Who knew?

    Yes, this definitely stops me from driving fast…

    India, I wasn’t thinking of a physical resemblance, and in truth J. Depp has grown somewhat more slick in interviews these past years. But J. Dean’s manner does remind me of J. Depp’s in some of the early (but post-Jump Street) interviews with Depp.

    I guess I haven’t seen him in any interviews (nor Jump Street, for that matter); just movies.

    I like the movie with James Franco playing him.

    I was thinking more Brad Pitt.
