Johnny Depp to play Pee Wee Herman??

Johnny Depp has had a reputation for playing odd, off-the-wall characters, but Pee Wee?

According to the Daily Stab, Depp is considering an offer to star in two upcoming Pee-Wee Herman movies:
Paul Reubens, who played Pee-Wee in TV shows and films until 1990,
has completed two scripts he hopes to bring to the big screen in 2009.
Until now, Reubens planned to reprise the role himself, but admits he has
spoken to Johnny Depp about taking on the part instead. Reubens says, “(He
said) Let me think about it.”

Perhaps "Let me think about it" is just a nice way of saying "Get the hell away from me you nerdy little freak." and the Daily Stab took it to mean something different.

Not sure why Rubens wouldnt just reprise the role that put him on the map in the first place. This seems like its totally coming from left field.
