But will he be funny?
The first trailer for upcoming Johnny Depp comedy “Mortdecai” doesn't give away much about what audiences can expect from the movie, except its star acting like an idiot.
The preview (above) introduces the character without introducing any of the movie's plot, or even revealing who Mr. Mortdecai is.
According to the plot synopsis from Lionsgate, he's a debonair art dealer and part-time rogue in a race with Russians, terrorists and Britain's MI5 to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold.
“Mortdecai” hits theaters on Feb. 6.
