Johnny Depp He just took a small step in his resurgence in Hollywood…because he has returned to the television sets, appearing on MTV at the Video Music Awards in an astronaut suit.
The movie star just made his debut as the network’s famous Moonman, recently dubbed Moonperson, dressing up and showing his face Sunday to kick off the awards telecast. But that’s all that was shown…literally just a cup video of him in his suit, which appears to have been pre-recorded. He said that he “needed the job”, and that was it.
It seems the real McCoy wasn’t there for the show. Hush, great!
As we told you first… Johnny was booked by a surprise appearance at the VMAs, and came on the heels of the recent announcement of his return to the movies plus his new deal with Dior to remain the face of the Sauvage fragrance line.
Johnny’s won 5 MTV Movie Awards in his career, including Best Villain, Global Superstar, Best Male Performance, and the Generation of 2012 Award.
Depp’s Moonman concert represents a milestone for him… marking his first major appearance on American television since 2017 when he was in Jimmy Kimmeltalk show.
