Keith Richards Films Pirates Cameo

Fox 411’s Roger Friedman talked to British actor Bill Nighty (aka Davy Jones) last night at the Beverly Hills Hotel and learned that The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards has filmed his cameo as Johnny Depp’s swashbuckling dad in Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End, which is shooting in Palmdale, California:

Nighy wasn’t on set when Richards came for his big Hollywood moment, but he more or less confirmed for us a tale we’d heard earlier. Richards, no stranger to substances and liquids, was left to his own devices in his trailer before his big scene. That wasn’t a good idea. When the time came to shoot, he was a bit “wobbly.” To keep him straight, director Gore Verbinski held Richards by the shins.

“If you’d wanted straight, then you got the wrong man,” Richards replied huskily.

Richards’ pirate costume, sources say, closely resembles Depp’s, with a different colored bandana. The two had such a good time together that Depp kept a souvenir from Richards’ short visit: a set of stairs built for Richards to get in and out of his trailer, which he signed to Depp with the salutation, “A step too far.”

The third installment hits theaters May 25.

Sounds cool. I’m glad they were able to get him to do a cameo.

One comment, damn he’s old!

  1. Oh dammit, that was a spoiler, wasn’t it?

    I think I’m going to avoid the Pirates stuff until I can get my hands on the movie. 🙂
