Keith Richards: Johnny Wants Me for ‘Pirates 5’

Keith Richards with Johnny DeppJohnny Depp wants Keith Richards to star in another Pirates of the Caribbean film.

The actor based his iconic character, Captain Jack Sparrow, on The Rolling Stones star, and Keith made cameo appearances as Sparrow's father, Captain Teague, in 2007's At World's End and 2011's On Stranger Tides. Now, Johnny wants Keith to put on his pirate outfit once again for the fifth movie.

"I spoke to Johnny a couple of weeks ago and he said, 'Are you up for another one?' I can leave it at that because I know no more. But I do have the costume," Keith said.

The 68-year-old musician is more often recognized by the younger generation for his role in the films than he is as a member of The Rolling Stones. "Some kids who don't know nothing about The Rolling Stones [say], 'It's Johnny Depp's dad! It's Captain Teague!' I was born for the part," he said in an interview.
