TMZ noted that the ad recently aired prime-time during an episode of MasterChef on Fox from 8-9pm on Wednesday nights.

Speak with The Sunday Times last month, super producer Jerry Bruckheimer said there were no plans to bring him back to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, although Margot Robbie is still in the running for a spin-off film.

During his defamation trial, Depp’s former agent Tracey Jacobs testified that he used an on-set earpiece to feed his lines, although in a 2018 Vanity Fair profile, the actor claimed to have played sounds and music to help him get into the right mindset for a performance.
