Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 Just Added Paul McCartney To Its Cast

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.
