Alice Cooper will play himself in a small cameo role in the new Tim Burton movie reboot of the classic TV show “Dark Shadows.” Johnny Depp stars as vampire Barnabas Collins, along with Chloe Moretz, Eva Green, Gulliver McGrath, Bella Heathcote, Ray Shirley, Jackie Earle Haley, Jonny Lee Miller, and Michelle Pfeiffer. Dark Shadows will open on May 11, 2012.

The film is set back in 1972 and its been reported that Depp’s Collins character will hire Cooper to play a private ball at his seaside home in Maine. Perfect casting, and I can wait to see the results!

Alice has appeared in other horror films, including “Nightmare On Elm Street: Freddy’s Dead” and “Prince Of Darkness.” Here’s a shot of the cast from a recent issue of Entertainment Weekly:
