Nominated for several Oscars and a fan-favorite, Depp is easily one of the most talented actors alive, showing a range and depth uncommon in any actor. Through sheer skill, he can show such an incredible range of emotions that most other actors don't compare. I dare someone to try and prove me wrong.

I'm sorry. I mean, like, top 20 living actors. Maybe top 10. I apologize for being vague, and thus ruining the first few rounds of this debate. Your move still, I guess.

Well, it seems I sorta messed up this whole debate by being sorta general. Oh well. Johnny Depp displays a versatility in acting unknown to any other actor. Look at the sheer variety of rolls he's played: Awkward, frightening teen (Edward Scissorhands) ambitious, cross-dressing director (Ed Wood) Cocky, egotistical pirate (Pirates of the Caribbean) and even a creepily joyful, out-of-it candymaker (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory). Lets see Daniel Day Lewis play a pirate. The End.

He is pretty good.
However, I think Daniel Day-Lewis is possibly the best actor ever.
Any movie he's been in. Utterly convincing.

So we're saying Johnny is... Top 3? Top 5? Top 10? Top 20? Or what? That should have been addressed in the title or opening pro argument, in my opinion.

My only issue with this debate is the flexible use of the word "most." By saying he is "one of the most talented" would imply that there is an approxamite number of people who are better or worse than he is, but either way are grouped together in the same sort of bracket. I would like to know a ballpark figure of this number. So for instance, I could argue that there are ten living actors who are better than Johnny Depp; however, I could not argue that there are twenty. So that kind of affects the whole debate, no? I dunno. Maybe I'm talking out of my a$$ on this one, but I think I have a logical point :)
