Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp likes books. And he's putting his name and time on the line to help run a publishing imprint named after his production company, Infinitum Nihil ("nothing is forever") at HarperCollins publishers. 

Depp's already got a big billing on the roster:  Bob Dylan has signed on with "The Unraveled Tales of Bob Dylan," adapted from interviews with best-selling historian Douglas Brinkley.  Dylan's collection, aimed for 2015, marks the singer-songwriter's attempt to set the record straight about his life and music.  

Depp's previous ventures in publishing involved other rock star tie-ins.  In 2010, he brilliantly narrated half of the audio edition of Keith Richard's memoir, "Life."  Depp also enjoyed a literary relationship with close friend Hunter S. Thompson, who he has played in several movies.  Depp starred in film adaptations of Thompson's novel "The Rum Diary" and his cult-classic nonfiction piece "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," as well as narrating Alex Gibney's "Gonzo" doc and penning the intro to Thompson's memoir, "Gonzo."
