He may be currently under house arrest in his posh ski chalet in the ski town of Gstaad, Switzerland, but famed director Roman Polanski has a lot of A-list support behind him.  Most recently, Johnny Depp has added his name to the list of Polanski’s supporters, which include Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, David Lynch, Monica Bellucci, and Tilda Swinton.  Depp says, in an interview with “The Independent,” that “Obviously, something (referring to Polanski’s recent detainment in relation to his 1977 rape conviction) is going on somewhere.  Somebody has made a deal with someone.”  Just last week, a judge in LA ruled that Polanski will have to leave his chalet for the U.S., where he will be sentenced for the 1977 conviction.
