Johnny Depp and Hunter S. Thompson seemed to truly understand each other. Depp starred as Thompson in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, the movie based on Thompson’s 1971 book of the same name. Depp is back in The Rum Diary, based on a novel by Thompson about a freelance journalist in Puerto Rico in the late 50s.
