Details on Alice Cooper's Cameo in Tim Burton's Dark Shadows
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee is set to make a cameo in Johnny Depp's new vampire film. Click the jump to find out which song he'll be performing in the film.
In Dark Shadows Alice will be playing himself, which isn't something entirely new for him. The Detroit Native has made several cameos in films playing himself. His most memorable cameo is in Wayne's World when he allowed the curtain of his frightful on-stage persona to drop and showed a gentler Alice. An Alice that shared his love of the his history of Milwaukee. I included a video with the scene below, if you haven't had the pleasure of viewing it til now.
Cooper was equally impressed walking through the huge, elaborate sets of “Dark Shadows,” the Warner Bros. film that stars Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Eva Green and Helena Bonham Carter and reaches theaters in May 2012. “They should take that set and make it a haunted house next year,” Cooper said of the Pinewood Studios constructs that include a sprawling gothic mansion and a harbor city complete with pier and boats floating in an artificial ocean. Cooper plays himself in the film, which is set in 1972 – Depp’s character, the recently revived vampire Barnabas Collins, hires the rock star to play a private ball at his seaside home in Maine. It adds to Cooper’s acting credits, which includes cameos in “Nightmare on Elm Street: Freddy’s Dead” and John Carpenter’s “Prince of Darkness.”
“He’s a guy you have to watch when he’s up on the stage and the songs are just classic,” Depp said last month about Cooper, who, wearing his trademark makeup, plays “No More Mr. Nice Guy” in the film. (His collaboration with Depp went beyond the confine of Pinewood — the actor brought his guitar along to perform with the rock star and his band during a London gig.)
“Dark Shadows” will star: Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham-Carter, Michelle Pfeiffer, Eva Green, Chloe Moretz and Jackie Earle Haley and is slated for a May 2012 release.
