On the absolutely frigid red carpet for Adam Sandler’s “Just Go With It” on Tuesday night, MTV News got an answer to a burning question about another upcoming Sandler comedy, “Jack and Jill.”
Last month, paparazzi photos surfaced showing Johnny Depp visiting the set of “Jack and Jill,” in which Sandler plays both halves of a boy/girl set of twins, leading to speculation that the “Pirates of Caribbean” star will make a cameo in the flick. We put that question to director Dennis Dugan — who’s helmed not only “Just Go With It” and “Jack and Jill,” but five other Sandler films — and got a cameo confirmation.
“There’s a secret guest star, but I can’t say who it is,” Dugan said, before admitting: “Johnny Depp.”
We followed up to make sure Dugan wasn’t just messing with us. “No!” he said.
So we can mark that rumor as official fact, though Dugan stopped short of letting us know the exact nature of Depp’s cameo. But the mere fact that Depp has signed on for the appearance is not only kind of great, but gives us hope that he’ll also pop up for a cameo in the big-screen adaptation of “21 Jump Street.” Goodness knows MTV News has been doing everything we can to make that happen.
In non-Depp-related “Jack and Jill” news, we’ve got another scoop for you: the answer to the question of what Sandler looks like dressed up as a woman.
Said Dugan, “Not Brooklyn Decker in ’Just Go with It.’ ”
Check out everything we’ve got on “Just Go With It.”
