POP CULTURE: Great Moments in Movie Cameos

Keith Richards will appear as Johnny Depp's pirate father in the second Pirates Of The Caribbean sequel, playing "a whisky-soaked buccaneer." I'm guessing that won't be a stretch.

I read that he agreed but later backed out. He's not listed w/the cast & imdb:

Whoops, wrong link. Sorry. I did read that though.

I think they wanted Richards for the second film (the one opening this week) but couldn't get him. Apparently he's agreed to be in the next one.

They tried to write a part for a "heroin-addled rock 'n roller," but it came off as a bit anachronistic.

Thus, the "whiskey-soaked buccaneer" instead.

I think Keith Richards has been diligently researching the "whiskey-soaked" thing since whenever it was that he gave up heroin, so I expect a fine method performance.
