Alice Cooper to appear in Dark Shadows

Not had your fill of Tim Burton and Johnny Depp news yet? Well the duo have hit the headlines once more with news that Alice Cooper will appear in Dark Shadows .

Who will the rocker play in the big screen adaptation of the kitsch TV show? Himself, of course!

Having been around in the '70s - when the film is set - he's the perfect act to play a private ball thrown by vampire Barnabas Collins (Depp).

Will they CGI him in a Tron: Legacy stylee to shave off the years?

No need. Cooper just needs the trademark make-up he used to wear at the time and he can hide the excess years.
