Rock star Alice Cooper has confirmed that he will be making a cameo appearance in the new Dark Shadows feature film, following widespread rumours over the past week. Appearing on BBC One chat show Lee Mack's All Star Cast (incidentally also filmed at Pinewood Studios), Cooper revealed that his part was set to go before the cameras on Friday July 1.
"It's called Dark Shadows... You didn't get this over here [in the UK] – this was like Coronation Street with vampires. And somehow it was a hit. Tim Burton saw this and said somehow we have to recreate this." Asked what role he would playing, Cooper said: "I don't know. I really don't know... We're shooting it Friday. I guess they should have told me by then."
