Aerosmith to present Johnny Depp with honor at MTV Movie Awards

Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Joe Perry will be on hand at the MTV Movie Awards this Sunday to present Johnny Depp with the MTV Generation Award.

The MTV Generation Award is the Movie Awards' highest honor, acknowledging an actor who can be counted on to engage the MTV audience with everything he or she does ... previous recipients include Reese Witherspoon, Sandra Bullock, Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Mike Myers, Tom Cruise and Jim Carrey.

For nearly four decades now, Depp has brought his own iconic style to life on the small screen (in "21 Jump Street"), in cult faves like "Ed Wood" and "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," and in big-screen smashes like "Sleepy Hollow," "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and, of course, the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise.

As part of the celebration, the Black Keys will perform a special rendition of their hit "Gold On The Ceiling" in Depp's honor.

The MTV Movie Awards will be hosted by comedian Russell Brand and will air live from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California on Sunday, June 3 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Depp joined Alice Cooper, Perry and Tyler on stage at the premier afterparty for the new Tim Burton film, "Dark Shadows," on May 7 to play some classic rock tracks by The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones.
