Pictures from Kevin Smith’s currently filming Yoga Hosers, with Johnny Depp, Johnny Depp’s daughter, and Kevin Smith’s daughter, seem to suggest that Haley Joel Osment has put on an enormous amount of weight.
However, I am pretty sure that’s just mostly prosthetic make up, regardless of what The Daily Mirror suggests. (The moustache, however, is probably and unfortunately very real). Save for adorably chubby cheeks, he looks fairly normal for a 26 year old in the promos for Tusk, and since Yoga Hosers is being filmed essentially back-to-back with Tusk, it seems unlikely that Haley Joel Osment actually put on 200 pounds in between films.
But, having listened to a podcast with Haley Joel Osment recently, and another podcast from Kevin Smith in which he discussed Yoga Hosers at length (it’s not what you think it is), I’m actually pretty excited about it, plus Tusk. In fact, Hosers is something of a spin-off of Tusk, featuring the same cast, but centered on anti-American Canadian teenagers played by Harley Quinn Smith and Lily-Rose Depp.
I give Kevin Smith a lot of grief, but to be honest, with the exception of Cop Out, I always end up appreciating his movies. Tusk likely won’t be an exception.
