Saturday, December 8: Alice Cooper's Christmas Pudding @ Comerica Theatre

Johnny Depp is a talented actor, ladykiller, and all-around badass. I don't need to state the obvious, but the guy has played Captain Jack Sparrow, Edward Scissorhands, and Raoul Duke, all characters possessing the rock star mystique. But when he's not gracing the silver screen, the guy likes to act like an actual rock star (see Johnny Depp's 5 coolest rock moments).

That's what he'll be doing at Alice Cooper's Christmas Pudding, where according to Cooper's Solid Rock Facebook page, he'll "join Alice and his band, featuring Orianthi, Don Felder, L.A. Guns, and special guest host John O'Hurley for a night of music, dance, and mayhem!" He's not just gracing the stage with his aloof, good-looking presence, by the way. No, Depp is really going to rock with Cooper, strapping on some undoubtedly expensive ax to shred to the crowd's delight. Depp has rock in his DNA; after all, Keith Richards played his cinematic father in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series, and the two paired up for a blues jam at the Rum Diary after-party.

Depp's something of a regular guest at rock shows, popping up at Eddie Vedder, Patti Smith, and Marilyn Manson performances. And he's played with Cooper before, too. The two met at a Rolling Stones show and have since shared the stage a couple of times, grinding out classic Cooper tracks like "I'm Eighteen" and "School's Out."

It's hard to say exactly what Depp will be doing at Cooper's annual holiday concert; if he's known for anything, it's his unpredictability.--Melissa Fossum
