In 2011, Stone described Charlie on the set as a “dumb-struck 17-year-old the first time he came in for the film, back when we were going to make it in ’84.  And in those two years, he’d grown and seemed perfectly wide-eyed and had a vaguely privileged look.”

As for Depp, Stone knew that he was going to make it big.  “He was a great looking kid.  He was considered for other roles, but I didn’t think he was quite ready at that time to play Charlie’s role.  We got to know each other pretty well in the jungle and I really thought he was going places.  He was shy.  I think it was before Jump Street.”
