First Shots of Johnny Depp as Barnabus Collins in “Dark Shadows”

Celebuzz has gotten a hold of the first pics of Johnny Depp as dandy vampire Barnabus Collins in Tim Burton‘s big-screen Dark Shadows adaptation, and they’re pretty hilarious.

Certainly a departure from Jonathan Frid‘s original Barnabus, who was a tad more understated. While I like the emerald green trench and fedora, I think he needs to ease up on the makeup and sideburn gel. If he’s not careful he may be mistaken for Depp’s Willy Wonka or Mad Hatter. Or maybe Lisa Stansfield.
