Johnny Depp will reprise his role as EDWARD SCISSORHANDS–on FAMILY GUY!

According to Entertainment Weekly, Johnny Depp is scheduled to return to his iconic role as Edward Scissorhands for a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo in an episode of Fox’s animated (and outrageous) comedy Family Guy. EW reports that Johnny provides Edward’s distinctive voice “in one of the show’s cutaway gags.” However, it took some effort for Johnny to resurrect the persona he created two decades ago. “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,” Family Guy executive producer Mark Hentemann told EW. However, Johnny “was able to snap right back into Edward Scissorhands once we pulled up a clip from the movie.”

Hentemann pronounced Johnny “amazing,” adding praise for the “extraordinary patience” Johnny showed with “all the fawning women in our office who swarmed him.”
