Depp’s face was digitally superimposed into the helmet of a floating spaceman who floated above the star-studded audience.
“You know what? I needed the work,” joked the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star.
Fans took to Twitter to share mixed reactions to the surprise cameo.

Earlier this month, a blind item appearing in the Deux Moi gossip site led fans to suspect that Depp will be playing Uncle Fester in Netflix’s upcoming “Addams Family” spinoff series “Wednesday”, reuniting with director Tim Burton.
