Johnny Depp made a surprise and weird appearance at the 2022 MTV VMAs as the channel’s popular mascot, Moon Man.
While sitting on stage during a screening, he was heard saying “I need work” as the annual ceremony opened.
It marks the actor’s latest appearance in an apparent comeback to the public, following his victory in a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against ex-partner Amber Heard.
In subsequent virtual appearances at the VMAs, he stated that he was ready for “birthdays, bar festivals, Batman festivals, weddings, food, whatever you need… anything… what.
“Oh, I’m a dentist too,” he added.
It was recently announced that Depp will direct his first feature film in 25 years with Modi, about Italian painter and sculptor Amedeo Modigliani.
The announcement comes a week after Depp confirmed his first major role since claiming victory in his now notorious legal battle in Fairfax County, Virginia, earlier this year.
He will appear in the Jeanne Du Barry film, produced by the French company Why Not Productions.
While awaiting the verdict in the trial, Depp appeared several times with musician Jeff Beck in the UK, at venues in London, Newcastle and Glasgow.
