According to TMZ, the actor is set to make a surprise appearance at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards on 28 August 2022. The actor will be dressing up as Moonman, now known as Moonperson, the network’s mascot. Perhaps his appearance at the show is because he is returning to the entertainment industry. The star is set to direct and produce a film centered around the Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani.
