Character Spotlight: Cry-Baby

Wade Walker, also known as "Cry Baby" because he has the ability to shed one single tear, driving all the girls wild. He lives in Baltimore, and is called a Drape because he wears a leather jacket, drives a motorcycle, has greasy hair and loves rockabilly music. He was raised by his Uncle Belvedere and Grandmother Ramona after his parents were executed, his father being the notorious "Alphabet Bomber" who would set off bombs in alphabetical order.  He falls in love with a Square named Allison, who despite her good girl nature finds herself instantly drawn to Cry-Baby and his bad-boy persona. Played by Johnny Depp in John Water's 1990 cult favorite Cry-Baby, one look at this character and you'll be instantly drawn to him too.
