What do you think Johnny brought to Ichabod? What special talents and gifts did he use to bring Ichabod to life?

Well first and foremost his own self of course lol woundn't be working if someone els played the part. But I think he brought in the whole character of Ichabod and totally on his account also. If you can build up a character out of an idea that it had to be a pubescent girl and a little Angela Lansbury adding than it could easily have gone wrong and not worth looking at, but with Johnny you'll know it will, that is his strength, making it worth seeing although the description of it is not that appealing.

Interesting to know if it worked the same way if he had actually some prosthetics on. I think it would have because it is all in his facial expression and his way of moving around.

I think one of the things that brought Ichabod to life was Johnny's unique ability to create a character that is totally different, something we've never seen before. I think that is one of his greatest talents. He is not afraid to try something different, and as was mentioned in the special features, he's not afraid to make an ass of himself. It's what sets him apart from everyone else, and one of the reasons we all love him so much. He is also gifted with a wonderful sense of humor which really showed through in Ichabod.

Johnny seems to be able to get into the skin of the character he is portraying. If this is method acting (which sometimes seems to frowned on, at least in remarks made by others), then I say more actors should use that technique. He also embues his characters with a quality that makes you like them and care about them. By the end of the movie, they have become good friends.

Ichabod, for all his squeamishiness and girlish attitudes, enlisted our sympathy for what he had to go through. I saw myself in him, trying to get through a distasteful moment with as much grace as possible....trying to make, forgive me, lemonade out of lemons.

Sympathy for the character............Johnny brings that to all his roles, and I think that he chooses those roles purposefully in order to do that. He makes us look at people with fresh eyes.
