Deeply, Deeply into Darkness Dips Depp

What Johnny Depp is doing with his movie career is a scary thing indeed. He opens this month in The Astronaut's Wife, a horror flick. December finds Depp searching for demonic texts in The Ninth Gate,, you know what it is. And didn't he launch his career in that frightening Nightmare on Elm Street? So what's the deal with Depp and the dark side? "Total coincidence," says his agent Tracy Jacobs. "There was no devine plan." No reflection of his personal interests, either? Jacobs says no; Depp, a new dad living in France with 2-month-old daughter Lily-Rose and her mom, Vanessa Paradis, is "extremely happy in his life."

Inset:Depp plays opposite Christina Ricci in Sleepy Hollow.
