2: Ed Wood (1994)

By DAVID WEINER

July 02, 2013

In one of his most charming and infectious performances, Johnny teams up with director Tim Burton to portray Plan 9 from Outer Space auteur Ed Wood, who is remembered as arguably the worst director in Hollywood history. The character is brought to life by Johnny, who manages to portray Wood's blind optimism as both outlandish and likeable simultaneously. Infamous for his films' improbable storylines and range of technical and physical glitches, not to mention his penchant for wearing women's clothing, Wood's career was boosted by his personal friendship with the ailing, elderly Dracula star Bela Lugosi (a role that earned Martin Landau a Best Supporting Actor Oscar).
