Paul McCartney, who filmed a cameo for the upcoming ‘Pirates of the Caribbean – Dead Men Tell No Tales’, debuted his character in full swashbuckler regalia on social media on Saturday.
In a promo photo captioned #PiratesLife, McCartney is seen with long, charcoal-coloured hair, heavy eye shadow and a bandana under his weathered pirates’ cap. The bassist is also holding a hand of playing cards while staring ominously at the camera.
McCartney isn’t the first rocker to board Johnny Depp’s Disney franchise: The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards has played Captain Teague, the father of Depp’s Jack Sparrow, in a pair of Pirates of the Caribbean films.
While McCartney did not offer any hint at what role he will be playing in the upcoming Pirates film, E! Online reports that a cast list revealed that the Beatle would portray a jail guard. Deadline reported in March 2016 that the McCartney sequence, “an extra big set-piece scene”, was filmed after production had initially ended in order to add the singer’s cameo to the film.
‘Pirates of the Caribbean – Dead Men Tell No Tales’ is out on May 26. Sir James Paul McCartney, MBE is an English singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer. He gained worldwide fame with the rock band the Beatles, largely considered the most popular and influential group in the history of pop music.
