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.
Actress Amber Heard has reportedly dumped her longtime girlfriend, photographer Tasya van Ree, for her 'Rum Diaries' co-star Johnny Depp. Heard and Van Ree had been dating since 2008, but she has been getting closer to Depp over the past couple of months. Depp recently split from his partner of 14 years Vanessa Paradis.
There were also rumors that Depp was getting involved with 'Dark Shadows' co-star Eva Green. Good grief. All parties in this are moving on, and E! News is reporting that Johnny is wooing Amber with a horse. A horse? Not even a unicorn?

A number of golden popcorns were handed out at Movie Awards, hosted this year by Russell Brand. Not much happened, the Miss USA pageant was more exciting, but the show was highlighted with a performance by The Black Keys featuring Johnny Depp. Depp was given the "Generation Award," which is apparently a thing now, by Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith. I guess Keith Richards wasn't available.
Oh, and Aniston pretended to be "surprised" at her win for "Best On-Screen Dirtbag". As IF she would've attended had she not already known she was being given such a prestigious award. Come ON. (You know how human beings' noses and ears continue to grow with age? I think Aniston's chin is getting bigger--and it's NOT just in this photo!)
Anyway, here are the winners!

I was very surprised. In a good way.
Enough with the set pics, we finally get to see Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins in creepy motion. Tim Burton's latest is based on the 1966-71 vampire soap opera which also featured ghosts, werewolves and witches. The original series was known for it's gothic atmosphere and melodrama, but it seems Burton has gone a completely different route with this one.
When Barnabas returns in 1972, he has to deal with his present day relatives, played by Michelle Pfieffer, Chloe Moretz, Jonny Lee Miller and Helena Bonham Carter as the family's psychiatrist.
Besides dealing with the fact that people get around in cars now, there is Eva Green's witch Angelique who is trying to seduce him 200 years later. I wasn't entirely sure what to expect from this, but it looks like it could be really good.
Dark Shadows will be in theaters May 11th, check out the trailer!
I guess I was under the impression that "Dark Shadows" wasn't going to be quite as cheeky as it seems. I'm diggin' it, man. And the soundtrack will be 70's-cool. And in IMAX, my babies.
