By Madeline Smith,

Johnny Depp has agreed to select the winner of reality show Chinese Dream.

Depp has agreed to choose the winner of the popular show and take them to Hollywood, according to Rolling Stone.

Chinese Dream is a talent competition that features live performances. The audience then votes on which performers will advance to the next round.

Back in April, Depp visited China, notes The Hollywood Reporter, and was first asked why he decided to do the show. He said that he could relate to the struggling young contestants who are trying to break out.

"I would love to make a film here and spend time here," Depp told an audience in April, THR reported at the time. "I could live here, easily. It's a very warm experience."

According to fans of Chinese Dream who posted on the Sina Weibo service, Depp is as popular in China as he is in the U.S.

"It is a blessing from several lifetimes to be the disciple of Depp," Zhiyu Xinlixue wrote on the Twitter-like service. "Who will be the lucky one? Depp, if you can’t decide, you can take me."

Another added, "Ever since Edward Scissorhands, Depp is a man-god in the hearts of thousands of girls. I am so jealous that he will take a disciple and take him/her to Hollywood."

Depp will next be seen in the states as the wolf in Into the Woods later this year. He is expected to reprise his beloved character Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Mean Tell No Tales in 2016.
