Johnny Depp's muse for his role as Willy Wonka in forthcoming movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is set to shock fans of the children's book - it's shock rocker Marilyn Manson.
The Oscar-nominated actor is keen to give his character a darker edge and has been inspired by the self-proclaimed Antichrist Superstar for his performance in the Tim Burton-directed adventure.
This is not the first time Depp has used a rock star as his inspiration - he based flamboyant pirate Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean on wildman Rolling Stone Keith Richards.
A source says: "He has his music and pictures in his trailer to help get in character. He's making Willy far more sinister than before and there's a little of Marilyn in there."
