Santa Monica, CA (June 1, 2012) - MTV today announced that actor/musician Johnny Depp will be honored at the "2012 MTV Movie Awards" with the MTV Generation Award for his exceptional contributions to the film industry and for entertaining generations of the MTV audience throughout his illustrious career, live from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, CA on Sunday, June 3, 2012 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. One of Hollywood's iconic movie stars, Depp is considered one of the most talented and accomplished actors of his time and continues to dazzle moviegoers across the world with his exceptionally diverse range of roles.

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

"Johnny Depp is a fearless, once-in-a-generation talent with a chameleon-like ability to inhabit any role," said Stephen Friedman, President of MTV. "With years of astonishing performances, Johnny has truly earned this Generation Award, and we look forward to honoring him with a can't-miss tribute at this year's Movie Awards."

With a devoted fan base, Depp found early success and critical acclaim in playing the title character of "Edward Scissorhands," following his role on the 1980's TV series "21 Jump Street." He then went on to star in the cult-classics "Sleepy Hollow," "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," and "Blow" among others. While developing an early friendship with director Tim Burton, throughout his career Depp has appeared in eight of Burton's films which feature some of his most varied and skilled performances including "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" for which Depp won the 2008 Golden Globe(R) Award for his striking portrayal, "Alice in Wonderland" and most recently "Dark Shadows." Perhaps best known for his fan-favorite and Academy Award nominated iconic role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise, Depp has set box office records and provided thrilling performances with each installment. Off-screen Depp is a music fan with a passion for playing guitar and has been honored with many awards voted on by the public.

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