For those that don't follow the gangster stuff let me explain, I love all the old stuff based on true stories from Donnie Brasco [Depp starred in this too], Goodfellas and Casino, there is something about movies that are based on real live events that does it for me. Whitey Bulger was the Irish mobsters #1 man and was feared as much as any Italian mobster leader, trust me.

Watch the video:


Quote:James Joseph "Whitey" Bulger, Jr. (born September 3, 1929) is an American convicted murderer and former organized crime figure.[1][2] Based on grand jury testimony from Kevin Weeks's former associates, US prosecutors indicted Bulger for 19 murders. Bulger is the brother of former President of the Massachusetts Senate William "Billy" Bulger.

Beginning in 1975, Bulger served as an informant for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).[3] As a result, the Bureau largely ignored his organization in exchange for information about the inner workings of the Italian American Patriarca crime family.[4][5][6] Beginning in 1997, the New England media exposed criminal actions by federal, state, and local law enforcement officials tied to Bulger. For the FBI especially, this has caused great embarrassment.[7][8][9] On December 23, 1994, after being tipped off by his former FBI handler about a pending indictment under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), Bulger fled Boston and went into hiding. For 16 years, he remained at large. For 12 of those years, Bulger was prominently listed on the FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list, 2nd behind Osama bin Laden.[10]

On June 22, 2011, Bulger was arrested outside an apartment in Santa Monica, California. Arrested with him was his longtime girlfriend Catherine Greig. Bulger was 81 years old at the time of his arrest.[11][12][13][14] Soon after, Bulger and Greig were extradited to Massachusetts and brought under heavy guard to the waterfront federal courthouse. This necessitated the closing of part of Boston Harbor. Greig pleaded guilty to conspiracy to harboring a fugitive, identity fraud, and conspiracy to commit identity fraud and was sentenced in June 2012 to eight years in prison. Bulger did not seek bail and remained in custody at the Plymouth County House of Correction in Plymouth, Massachusetts. On November 5, 2012, Bulger was taken to a hospital from his Plymouth prison cell after complaining of chest pains.[15]

On June 12, 2013, Bulger went on trial for 32 counts of racketeering, money laundering, extortion, and weapons charges, including his complicity in 19 murders.[16] On August 12, 2013, he was found guilty on 31 counts, including both racketeering charges, and was found to have been involved in 11 murders.[17] On November 14, 2013, Bulger was sentenced to two consecutive life terms plus five years for his crimes by U.S. District Judge Denise Casper.[18] Bulger is now inmate number 02182-748[19] currently incarcerated for life at the United States Penitentiary Coleman II in Sumterville, Florida.[20]

Bulger is also possibly involved with the murder of an unidentified woman, dubbed "Lady of the Dunes," who was murdered in Provincetown, Massachusetts, in 1974. After one of many facial reconstructions was released, it was reported that he was seen in the city with a woman who matched Lady of the Dunes's description

I'm personally really looking forward to this movie, I wonder how many on here appreciate these types of films, I think Depp is set to get an Oscar for this one just based on the trailer.

He really gripped me in that trailer. Depp is an awesome actor and can adapt to any role, IMO, recently the whole crazy character has got a bit boring and this role will revitalize his carer once again.

I did not know that actually, I guess that's why he does a good job. I loved him in Donnie Brasco.
