Moore On Depp and Dandies

A decent short interview with Alan Moore reveals some more specifics with his problem with the Wachowski brothers. And he also takes a poke at Hollywood's vanity-boys:

Johnny Depp saw fit to play this character as an absinthe-swilling, opium-den-frequenting dandy with a haircut that, in the Metropolitan Police force in 1888, would have gotten him beaten up by the other officers.
Sean Connery, of course, did exactly the opposite, and put Moore's opium-addled Allan Quatermain on the wagon. Ah, Alan, I'm starting to see why you're trying to write the whole mess off.
