Depp Laments Lost Richards Role
The CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY star had been looking forward to Richards making a cameo appearance as his dad in 2006's Pirates Of The Caribbean: DEAD MAN'S CHEST.
But now the legendary guitarist, who was the inspiration behind Depp's alter-ego Jack Sparrow, is too busy with his band's world tour to take time out for acting.
Depp says, " It doesn't look like it will happen now. Keith is on tour so it's hard to fit into the timeframe we're working to."
