Timothee Chalamet recently appeared as Johnny Depp aka Edward Scissorhands’s son Edgar Scissorhands in a new commercial that was aired during the Super Bowl 2021.
The 25-year-old Call Me By Your Name actor appeared in the Cadillac 2021 Super Bowl commercial which featured the actor as Edgar Scissorhands- the son of the much famous Johnny Depp character Edward Scissorhands, and the diva Winona Ryder reprising her role as Kim from the 1990 Tim Burton movie.
Winona aka Kim is Edgar’s mom, and Edgar inherited his father’s scissor hands. (Johnny Depp played Edward in the original.) “This is the story of a boy with scissors for hands. No, not that one,” Winona can be seen proclaiming in the clip.
The Big Game ad stars Timothée Chalamet and Winona Ryder — and Cadillac’s upcoming Lyriq electric SUV.
The ad for the new Cadillac is set to air during the Super Bowl LV. As we see Edgar suffer the hardships of scissors-as-hands living, Boggs takes notice when he finds joy in driving via a virtual reality headset.
Winona opened up about the much-anticipated and now much-loved commercial, and said that she “loved the idea of working with Timothée, and the fact that it was an electric car was important too…it was pretty surreal to have Timothée play my son, Edgar. Timothée is an incredible guy — so talented and sweet. I felt a pretty instant bond with him.”
Also Tim Burton said in a statement “It’s rare when a work you’re proud of continues to live on and evolve with the times, even after 30 years. I’m glad to see Edgar coping with the new world! I hope both fans and those being introduced to Edward Scissorhands for the first time enjoy it,”
