Keith Richards signs up for ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: World’s End’

>Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards will allegedly make an appearance as Captain Grant Sparrow in the next Pirates of the Caribbean film.

Richards was the inspiration for Captain Jack Sparrow, the role which Johnny Depp was nominated for an Academy Award as Best Actor in “The Black Pearl,” and Richards will make a cameo appearance at Sparrow’s father for the third outing.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer confirmed the 63-year-old rocker would be appearing in the latest outing at the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: World’s End’ during a Walt Disney Corporation press conference at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

“Keith Richards is going to be in the third Pirates… You’ll have to see the movie to see if he is playing the guitar.”
