The Johnny Depp Round
Ichabod Crane (Johnny Depp) Sleepy Hollow (1999)
Johnny Depp’s oddball New York detective is sent to the hamlet settlement of Sleepy Hollow to investigate a series of grisly decapitations.
He's a frequent user of new, but unproven forensic techniques like fingerprinting and autopsy.
Crane's methods are mocked by the townsfolk, and to be fair, they do seem a bit unnecessary when it turns out the culprit is not of this world.

Frederick Abberline (Johnny Depp) From Hell (2001)
Based on Alan Moore’s acclaimed graphic novel, which in cinematic terms is like saying "it’s a bit rubbish" – Depp stars as opium-addicted Scotland Yard Detective Frederick Abberline.
Sure he falls in love with a hooker, has troubling ‘psychic’ visions and is a bit heroin happy, but he does manage to catch Jack the Ripper – something no other movie detective can claim.
