Johnny Depp set for role in Kevin Smith's Tusk
Justin Long reveals that Johnny Depp has a role in Kevin Smith's upcoming horror, Tusk...
Kevin Smith has been a busy man. In addition to his sizeable collection of podcasts, he's been back making films of late, the first of which is going to be Tusk.
Tusk - which originated from one of Smith's podcasts - is described as a modern day monster movie, and it reunites him with actor Michael Parks, who gave such a memorable turn in Red State. The cast also includes Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez and Justin Long. And it's Long that's revealed that Johnny Depp is in the movie too.
Chatting to Long Island Newsday, Long revealed the news, and it's assumed that Depp's agreement to appear in the film is what sparked this Tweet off Smith back in September...
HE'S IN!!! HE'S IN!!!!!! #WalrusYes (More info when I can share it. Just needed to mark the highlight of my career for future reference...)

It'd be safe to assume that Depp has a small role in the movie, but he's a very high profile inclusion in it. More on Tusk as we hear it.
