Yo Ho, Pirates of the Caribbean Fans, It's Paul McCartney as a Pirate

Jack Sparrow, meet your match. Sir Paul McCartney has unveiled the first look at his character for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. And I’m kind of at a loss for words.


McCartney announced last year that he was joining the latest Pirates film in a mystery role, following Keith Richards’ (you know, that guy from the Rolling Stones) performance as Jack Sparrow’s father. Based on the photo, it looks like he won’t be a member of Salazar’s revenge crew, but more likely some guy that shows up randomly for a game of cards. Is it just me, or is there something, I dunno, weird about the photo? I’ve got to be honest, at first I thought he Photoshopped his face into a Pirates app or something. I mean... look at it.

A pirates life indeed. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales comes out May 26.

If his character mentions an octopus’s garden in the shade, I’m walking out of the theater. That’s if I actually pay to watch it.
