Johnny Depp Will Play Edward Scissorhands for ‘Family Guy’


If you’ve been missing Johnny Depp from the early days of Tim Burton (when they both resembled people and not giant paychecks), you can catch the actor in an upcoming episode of Fox’s Family Guy. He’ll be reprising his role as the mild-mannered man with sharp scissors for mitts, Edward Scissorhands.

EW reports that it took the actor a little bit of time to get back into the role, but Family Guy executive producer Mark Hentemann told the website that “he was able to snap right back into Edward Scissorhands once [they] pulled up a clip from the movie.” Check out Depp’s “amazing” cameo when the series returns for round 11 on September 30.

Let’s hope this means better things for the actor who just broke up with partner Vanessa Paradis after 14 years, and whose movies have been lukewarm and faced rocky production periods. We’d like to think that a recent casting invite from Wes Anderson could set him straight.
