Who is Jack Whigham? Meet Johnny Depp's talent manager.
According to Sportskeeda, Jack is someone who's worked closely with Johnny. He is a managing partner of the Range Media Talent Agency and is known as a talent agent in Hollywood. Interestingly enough, he’s also related to an actor named Shea Whigham, who appeared in a movie called City of Lies back in 2018 alongside Johnny.
Another major actor Jack has worked with aside from Johnny happens to be Chris Hemsworth. It’s obvious Jack knows what he’s doing when it comes to dealing with high-profile celebrities.
How is Jack Whigham connected to Johnny Depp's lawsuit against Amber Heard?
Jack further explained that Johnny was blocked from being hired for major roles that otherwise would have easily been given to him. Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean featured Johnny playing Captain Jack Sparrow for years … but he was dropped from the franchise.
He was also replaced as Gellert Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts movie franchise. Jack made it clear that Johnny’s career took a nosedive after Amber said what she said about him.
Are there any other updates about Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's trial?
Jack’s testimony was obviously eye-opening for a lot of people in court.
There are other major updates about the trial to pay attention to other than what Jack recently brought to light though. One of the biggest headlines right now is the fact that Amber put forth a motion to have the judge toss out Johnny’s case entirely.
According to Deadline, the judge rejected her motion. This means that the trial will continue moving forward regardless of Amber's wishes. She obviously wants the trial to come to an end.
A lot of unsavory details about her former relationship with Johnny are being exposed for the world to see. It's most likely very uncomfortable for everyone involved. As of now, the trial will proceed until a final verdict is decided.
