NEW YORK (CBS) Johnny Depp has said that his dream role would be to play Carol Channing - an idea that Channing seems to be on board with.

"Isn't that something?" she said on "The View" Wednesday when asked about Depp's desire to play her.

"What do you think of that?" Elisabeth Hasselbeck asked her.

"Well, I've never been done that I know of by a woman. So, it doesn't seem to shock me," Channing responded. "He's a great artist."
