Johnny Depp has been accused of recycling characters in recent years, so now it’s time for something totally different.

Depp’s first trailer for his new film, “Mortdecai,” has arrived, and while the title role features some of his trademark quirk, it gives us an entirely new look at the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor.

The brief teaser trailer shows a blond, mustachioed Depp as a Charlie Mortdecai, a seeming man of leisure who is a bit of a heartbreaker, a criminal and, perhaps, also a bit of a buffoon.

Gwyneth Paltrow (as his British wife), Ewan McGregor and Olivia Munn will also appear in the film, with Depp attempting to track down a stolen painting in the search of gold treasure.

The trailer itself shies away from the plot,

The star is also prepping to get back in the roles of the Mad Hatter and Jack Sparrow in Disney’s “Through the Looking Glass” and “Pirates of the Caribbean 5,” respectively.
