In the Pirates of the Caribbean universe, Jack Sparrow’s father is played by Rolling Stones’ guitarist Keith Richards. That’s the only reason this next sentence isn’t completely and utterly insane: Sir Paul McCartney has joined the cast of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
According to Deadline, McCartney — who was in the Beatles if for some reason you’re confused — is playing a mystery role. A role that necessitated directors Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg to go and shoot an additional set piece.
Here’s Johnny Depp’s reaction.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which is bringing back Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Geoffrey Rush and adding Javier Bardem (among others), opens May 26, 2017.
