    I enjoy both performances for different reasons. I am a huge Johnny Depp fan and I really enjoyed the weird touch he brought to the character but Wilder was so great at being passive with everyone and his deadpan comedic delivery. I had to go with Wilder

    All Johnny Depp was doing was what would become his go to of slathering on tons of makeup and putting unnecessary quirks into his performance. Such a waste from what was once a promising actor who seems so mired in self parody if not outright delusion that I don’t know he will ever get it back.

    Wonderful Gene. Johnny was practicing up for Alice.

    I’m surprised this is even a question. Gene Wilder’s performance is iconic with his creepy but lovable touch and the way you never know exactly what he’s thinking. Imo Depp was just creepy and weird, and not in the good way that Wilder was. It seemed more like he was doing an imitation of Michael Jackson from an episode of south park than giving a performance actually appropriate for the character or story.

    I’ve never been on the “Johnny Depp is such a great actor” train.    Wilder was so much better.   No contest.

    Depp is so bad as an actor it actually hurts. I accidentaly voted on him, though. Shame on me.

    Depp’s portrayal of Willy Wonka, like many of his Tim Burton performances as of late, only feels superficially weird. Wilder really created that character. It isn’t even close for me; I frequently find myself defending Depp as a talented actor, but this is one of his biggest missteps (at least from what I’ve seen). Wilder blows him away.
