Her – Karen O

Besides an excellent song, if you skip to 1.11, the ukulele lives on in Hollywood.

Johnny Depp, a ukulele and George Formby

The Daily Star is reporting that Johnny Depp hopes to play George Formby in an adaptation of Formby’s life and the actor has taken up the banjolele and also talking like a northerner in preparation.  Hopefully this isn’t just idle gossip.  Whether it’s any good, we’ll have to just wait and see.  If you’re looking for a film to watch featuring the uke, I can recommend the 1965 film, A Thousand Clowns.  It’s about a uke playing iconoclast who faces losing custody of his nephew unless he conforms to society.
