Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp has his eye on a gender-bending movie role, as he is keen on portraying singer-actress Carol Channing in a biopic.

The Pirates of the Caribbean actor has regularly donned a series of bizarre outfits for his films like Edward Scissorhands and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and even dressed up as a woman for his part in 1994 comedy Ed Wood.

He is determined now to go even further with a future role by playing 88-year-old Channing, reports express.co.uk.

"My dream role would be to play musical legend Carol Channing in a biopic of her life. I love her, I really do, she's amazing... With all the digital technology these days, I could probably pull it off," he said.
