One never knows what Johnny Depp will do next, does one? Seems he and “Family Guy” creator, Seth MacFarlane are working together by bringing the Tim Burton-created character Edward Scissorhands on to the small screen.
“In a brief cameo, Depp voices Edward in one of the show’s cutaway gags. It did take a second for the actor — who watches the show with his kids — to get back into that vulnerable character from two decades ago, though. “When he was in the booth, he said that he felt like he hadn’t done that voice since he did it in front of the camera,” notes Family Guy executive producer Mark Hentemann.
“He was able to snap right back into Edward Scissorhands once we pulled up a clip from the movie.” Adds Hentemann: “He was amazing — and demonstrated extraordinary patience with all the fawning women in our office who swarmed him.”
Excuse me while I give a slow-clap to Johnny for remembering Edward’s speech cadence and tolerance with a bunch of slobbering chicks in an office. That’s “so extraordinary“, isn’t it?
Full. Body. Eyeroll.
