Streep was confirmed as the upcoming movie musical's evil witch back in February. The "Pirates of the Caribbean" star is said to have entered into negotiations to play a sexy variation of the big bad wolf. If he lands the part, it will mark his first singing role since tackling the title character in Tim Burton's "Sweeney Todd: The Demon of Fleet Street."

"Into the Woods," which unites classic fairy-tale characters, is also rumored to feature Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Christine Baranski as the wicked stepmother and Patrick Wilson as Prince Charming. "Nine" and "Chicago" director Rob Marshall, who worked with Depp on the fourth "Pirates of the Caribbean" installment, will direct the Stephen Sondheim musical.

Try watching him in the John Waters 1990 film "Cry Baby", with Traci Lords, among others.  He did a fair job of acting and singing in that role, as a 1950 heartthrob.
