London:`Pirates of the Carribean` star Johnny Depp has reportedly hired two homeless people as extras in his upcoming flick `Transcendence`.

The 49-year-old actor is said to have employed the couple after he saw them living in the streets in Albuquerque, New Mexico, reported Contactmusic.

"Johnny always likes to help out the community when on location. While scouting out the area around Albuquerque, he came across these two characters. He was straight on the phone to the casting director," a source said.
