Johnny Depp, also known as Edward Scissorhands, Captain Jack Sparrow, Ed Wood and Whitey Bulger, was once a simple pen salesman. Yup. As a telemarketer, he would hit up potential customers and entice them with free getaways to Greece or a grandfather clock so they would purchase his customized ballpoint pens. When his first wife introduced him to Nicolas Cage, his vocation changed. Nicolas advised him to pursue a different career: acting. The rest is history.
