At Least He's a Kook with A-List Aspirations

John Karr, most recently of not-the-killer-of-Jon-Benet-Ramsey fame, is now colluding with Johnny Depp to further wreck a fond childhood memory: Willy Wonka.

Gene Wilder doesn't like it, either.

Karr has a plan for a movie of himself based on a manuscript by himself, starring Johnny Depp as himself, to use Depp's Willy Wonka as a model. Karr would have some constructive criticism for Mr. Depp, though:

Willy Wonka is "very similar to my personality except for the fact that Willy Wonka did not know how to treat children, he had no knowledge of how to be around children."
Which just goes to show that no matter how badly an actor can butcher a character, somebody can always do you one better. Thanks, guys.

Now, where should the Oompa-Loompas take Mr. Karr/Depp and what should they do with him when they get there?
