It'd be great if Johnny can attend this, but we have to prepare for the possibility he won't. He may be filming Through The Looking Glass, and/or they may want to keep his involvement in the film under wraps (though for what reason, I don't know since so many articles include him in the cast list these days). Also, his part is small (we think). Although... wouldn't it be kinda cool for Johnny and Lily-Rose to both attend and pose together on the Red Carpet?
Well, an unconfirmed source has reinvigorated this hot rumor to us Thursday morning. The e-mail, which came from a regular anonymous tipster (they use the same fake e-mail address each time) – one that has been correct many times in the past – tells us that Depp is definitely playing a character named ‘Guy Lapointe’.
In Tusk, Justin Long plays a man who is surgically turned into a walrus by a mysterious seafarer (Michael Parks).
In a very Van Helsing-like character, Lapointe is described to us as an eccentric French Canadian detective who’s been hunting Howard Howe (played by Parks) for over a decade. He recounts gruesome details from previous cases – Howe’s victims were found with legs amputated and arms sewn back on, tongues hacked off, etc.
Lapointe, who called himself “Monsieur Lapointe”, is employed by Teddy (Haley Joel Osment) and Allison (Genesis Rodriguez) to help find Wallace (Long).
The coolest bit on info is that Depp “has thick accent” and is allegedly “barely recognizable” in the role.
