Wait … Is Johnny Depp in ‘Jack and Jill?’
Wait, seriously? He is? He has a surprise cameo? Apparently back in January, he was spotted on the film's set, and, in February, director Dennis Dugan confirmed it. Then? Nothing since then, no word, no leak, nothing. But he's still there on IMDB, in the "official credits" portion, as "himself." Is this true? Is he really in the movie? It's screening for critics tomorrow. If Depp's in it, it's going to be that much more difficult to hold our ears and close our eyes chant. This is totally not what we had in mind for Depp. This just feels wrong.
Fingers crossed it's just a mistake. By the way, here's the list we came up with, the one we were working on until we came across Depp's name: Norm McDonald, John McEnroe, Al Pacino, Robert Smigel, Regis Philbin, Tim Meadows, Shaquille O'Neal, Adam Sandler. (The ones who made the "yeah, you should probably just go ahead and be in 'Jack and Jill,' that sounds like where you're at in your career'" list were Katie Holmes, Drew Carey, Christie Brinkley, Dana Carvey, Dan Patrick, Nick Swardson, David Spade, Jared Fogel, Bruce Jenner and Allen Covert.)
