One of Johnny Depp's most iconic onscreen roles will be revived in a whole new way when he gets the animated treatment.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Depp is slated to reprise his role as Edward Scissorhands in a brief appearance on "Family Guy." Even though it's one of Depp's best-known roles, executive producer Mark Hentemann told EW that the superstar needed some assistance to slip back into Scissorhands-mode.
“He was able to snap right back into Edward Scissorhands once we pulled up a clip from the movie ... He was amazing — and demonstrated extraordinary patience with all the fawning women in our office who swarmed him.”
