Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter and Anne Hathaway in Tim Burton's Surrealist "Alice in Wonderland"

Johnny Depp may be one of the most desirable men in Hollywood, but he looks far from handsome in his latest film role.

In place of his light golden tan and dark brown hair, Depp is unrecognizable with his curly orange hair, pasty skin and pink make-up as she plays the ghoulish-looking Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's upcoming adaptation of Alice In Wonderland.

The 46-year-old actor joins Anne Hathaway, Matt Lucas, Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry and Helena Bonham Carter in the eagerly-anticipated movie.

Relative unknown Mia Wasikowska, 19, from Australia, will be playing Alice, who is much older in the film than in CS Carroll's classic.

Seventeen-year-old Alice struggles to fit into Victorian society and is about to be proposed to in front of hundreds of people at a garden party.

She flees the party and spots the White Rabbit (Michael Sheen) and follows him down a hole and into Wonderland.

While film fans will have to wait until March 2010 to see the film, Disney have given them a taste of things to come with the first official glimpse of the cast in their garish costumes.

The look of the film is typical Burton style with Victorian styling and extreme colour contrasts.

As well as being transformed by their costumes, the cast's features have been digitally altered, making them look far removed from their normal selves.

As the tea-drinking, unbirthday-celebrating Mad Hatter, Johnny's eyes are yellow and enlarged.

Producer Richard Zanuck said: 'This character is off his rocker. He is so much fun and so nutty, I can't imagine anyone else doing it.'
