EXCLUSIVEJohnny Depp and former drug kingpin George Jung hung out for the first time since the inspiration for "Blow" was released from jail ... and we got the pic.
Sources connected to Jung tell TMZ ... Depp reached out to the 72-year-old ex-coke dealer Wednesday to see if he wanted to catch up ... and Boston George jumped at the offer.
We're told Jung -- who was behind bars for almost 20 years -- visited J.D.'s Downtown L.A. loft, and they kicked back for a few hours with Amber Heard ... swapping stories about poetry, books and Ted Demme; the movie's late director.
Oh, to be a fly on the wall.
