As we reported back in July, Johnny Depp will be making a surprise appearance in Kevin Smith’s Tusk, premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival before its September 19 release.
Today, the official Twitter released this teaser look at the character Guy LaPointe, who is played by none other than Depp.
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, we explained that 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).
Hopefully we’ll see him in an official still some time soon.
