The shock-rock king Alice Cooper and actor Johnny Depp are good friends. And they are bandmates on the supergroup Hollywood Vampires, alongside Joe Perry. When asked in an interview with Yahoo about a possible biographical movie of his career, Cooper said that Depp would be the “Best Guy” to be him on the movie.
Alice Cooper said about possible biopic and having Johnny Depp playing him:
“I hope it’s not of those where we get to die first… Usually, it’s gonna happen with bands that were extremely commercially successful. Whereas Alice was successful and we sold a lot of records, but I did not appeal to everybody.
“I was definitely on the darker side. And I think that it would make a great movie, myself. And if Johnny Depp were just better looking, he could play me. Johnny would be the best guy to play me. Because he really likes to take those characters that nobody else wants to play.
“And he loves prosthetics – he would get my nose in there and the whole thing like that. He knows me well enough now where he could imitate me pretty well, I’m pretty sure.”
