The Daily Mail – With curly red hair sticking out from his quirky hat, a ghostly pallor and bohemian Victorian clothes, Johnny Depp is unrecognisable in his latest role.

The chameleon Hollywood actor is, once again, transforming his good looks for his upcoming role as the Mad Hatter in Alice In Wonderland.

The 45-year-old star is playing a darker version of the tea-drinking hat maker in Tim Burton’s upcoming remake of the Lewis Carroll classic.

And this picture is being touted as the first glimpse of the actor in the role.

Through his three decades-long career, Depp has frequently disguised his good looks for a variety of characters, including Edward Scissorhands and Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates Of The Caribbean movies.

Alice In Wonderland started filming in Cornwall earlier this autumn, with a relative unknown taking the lead role as fantasiser Alice.

Mia Wasikowska, 18, from Canberra, Australia, will be playing Alice, alongside Anne Hathaway as the White Queen.

Burton has also cast his real-life partner Helena Bonham Carter as the moody Red Queen.

The director frequently works with Bonham Carter in his movies, having cast her in Charlie And The Chocolate Factory (which also starred Depp), Big Fish and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street (again with Depp).

Matt Lucas, of Little Britain fame, has been cast as Tweedledum and Tweedledee.

The Queen star Michael Sheen (Tony Blair) will be the White Rabbit and Stephen Frye will play the Cheshire Cat, while Back To The Future star Crispin Glover (George McFly) will play the Knave of Hearts.
