Johnny Depp has many friends in high rock and roll places. So if he can’t get a Rolling Stone to appear in the fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, then why not a Beatle?
Deadline reports that Paul McCartney will appear in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. After shooting on the film was complete, he agreed to take part and an extra scene was created. No word on his role. The film will not be released until May 26th, 2017.
Keith Richards played the father of Depp’s character, Jack Sparrow, in the second and third installments, but was unavailable this time due to his day job commitments.
Depp has worked with McCartney before: the actor appeared in three of his music videos.
