Paul McCartney Reveals ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Character

Singer reportedly cameos as jail guard in fifth installment of Johnny Depp’s high seas saga

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 Saturday.

In a promo photo captioned #PiratesLife, McCartney is seen with long, charcoal-colored 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 May 26th.
