An excerpt from an interview with Johnny Depp in the January 1996 issue
PLAYBOY: You've played Ed Wood and Don Juan. Any other notable characters
you want to play?
DEPP: Le Petomane.
PLAYBOY: You speak, of course, of the noted Parisian cabaret performer
of the turn of the century, the fartiste who tooted grand opera from
his anus--the original classical gas?
DEPP: You have to admire anyone with such great control of his...
instrument. I'd love to play him. I'm sure there were tragic moments
in his life. It's tragic that he left no successors. But what a hysterical
scene when he discovers his gift. That's a role I'd do in a minute.
