Who, in your opinion, portays a better Wonka? Gene Wilder, or Johnny Depp?
Here is my take:
Johnny Depp is my favourite actor, everything he has done I have loved to pieces. However when it comes to Willy Wonka, I prefer Gene Wilder's performance. He played a much warmer character. And he played his Wonka more closely to the book (even though overall the new movie is closer to the book, aside from the ending) So Wilder gets my vote.
