Richards 'Will' Star In Pirates Sequel

Subscribe to Keith Richards alerts

LATEST: ROLLING STONE Keith Richards will star as Captain Jack Sparrow's father in one of the two upcoming Pirates Of The Caribbean sequels, co-star Bill Nighy has confirmed.

Johnny Depp, who plays Captain Sparrow, has been trying to persuade Richards to make a cameo for months, after revealing his character was based on the guitarist.

It was thought The Rolling Stones tour schedule stood in the way, but Depp was confident - earlier this month (JUL05) he said, "It's looking very good."

And Nighy - who plays DAVEY JONES in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST - is happy to end the speculation.

The British actor says, "I can confirm, Keith Richards will appear in Pirates of the Caribbean 2 or 3. I'm not sure which one, because they are being filmed back to back."
