The character of Captain Jack Sparrow is heavily inspired by The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards. However, it’s another famous UK rocker who will have a prominent role in the forthcoming installment of Disney’s billion-dollar franchise.
Deadline reports that Sir Paul McCartney will appear in Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. The details of his role are unknown, but Deadline notes “this is not a re-shoot, but rather an extra scene” in the film.
In recent years, McCartney has made cameos on TV shows like BoJack Horseman and 30 Rock. However, he hasn’t appeared on the silver screen since the 1987 British black comedy Eat the Rich.
Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, out in theaters on May 26th, 2017, stars Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem, Geoffrey Rush, and Orlando Bloom.
