Your First Look at Paul McCartney’s PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN Character

Your First Look at Paul McCartney’s PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN Character

We’ve known since March of last year that Paul McCartney was going to be involved with Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales in some capacity. Today, we’ve finally gotten an official look at the former Beatle in costume, via a new character poster from Disney that McCartney dropped on Twitter.

So what can we glean from this image? His hair and bandana recall Johnny Depp‘s Captain Jack Sparrow, while the hat is much more of a Geoffrey Rush Barbossa touch. And maybe it’s just the lighting, but his left hand has the grayish pallor of the ghost pirates. Given that the Sparrow clan do seem to be rock stars genetically–Keith Richards, of course, played Jack’s father Teague–there seems a better than average chance that McCartney’s character is part of the Sparrow bloodline somehow…and perhaps a missing genetic link between Jack and his perpetual frenemy Barbossa.

One thing we absolutely guarantee is that he won’t be depicted eating meat onscreen, since McCartney won’t do that. But whether or not he can eat an appple…well, that might be a spoiler if we knew, mightn’t it?

He can’t be Will Turner’s dad, since we already know who that is, and he probably isn’t Brenton Thwaites’ dad, because nobody cares about that. But it’s doubtful he’s just going to be some random extra like Glenn Close in Hook–clearly, this is a cameo that’s meant to be noticed.

Who do you think Paul will play? Will he reveal himself as a walrus, or perhaps be named Old Fred and have a submersible ship painted yellow? Yo-ho, you-hoo should speculate in comments!
