Johnny Depp to return as Edward Scissorhands, for ‘Family Guy’ episode

Johnny Depp is going to reprise his role as Edward Scissorhands, but not for the big screen. Depp will voice the character in an upcoming episode of the animated Fox comedy, “Family Guy”, EW reports.

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.”

Family Guy returns for season 11 on September 30, 2012.
