Johnny Depp's doppelgänger from Iran has gone viral, making some people think the actor has quit Hollywood.

Iranian model Amin Sal'es has been identified as Johnny's twin and it seems like he was recently taking part in a religious Ashura Shia festival in Tabriz, Iran.

Watch below to see the lookalike in action:


The fact that he looks more like Johnny Depp than Johnny Depp might not be by accident, as the Iranian doppelgänger appears to model himself against the actor's style.

With more and more are clocking onto the viral clip, fan theories are ranging from 'Depp quitting Hollywood' to the complete opposite in 'preparing for a new movie role'.

As shown in the clip above, the Johnny 'Deppelgänger' is rocking the actor's distinctive hair, goatee, and sunglasses.

He can be seen raising ceremonial sticks in a ritual.

As you might expect, Depp fans have been loosing their s**t on socials.

One person commented: "im crying he looks just like him fr."

"Woah – I guess I missed this part of Johnny Depp’s court proceedings…" someone else joked.

A third fan added: "Given that his ex is seen in Israel, quite understandable why brother Depp is in Iran."

"He's testing his light saber there. Practicing for next Star Wars movie," a fourth quipped.

Many were tagging the Hollywood actor asking: "What are you doing here?"

On June 1, the Pirates of the Caribbean actor was able to prove that Amber Heard's 2018 article in The Washington Post was defamatory and won $15 million (£12 million), later capped at $10.35 million (£8.27 million) by Judge Penny Azcarate.

In a separate verdict, Heard was also awarded two million dollars (£1.6 million) in damages via a counterclaim.

After the verdict landed in his favour, Depp released a statement on social media, which, in part, read: "Six years ago, my life, the life of my children, the lives of those closest to me, and also, the lives of the people who for many, many years have supported and believed in me were forever changed. All in the blink of an eye.

"False, very serious and criminal allegations were levied at me via the media, which triggered an endless barrage of hateful content, although no charges were ever brought against me.

"It had already traveled around the world twice within a nanosecond and it had a seismic impact on my life and my career.

"And six years later, the jury gave me my life back. I am truly humbled."
