|McCartney the Actor: Paul during the 'Silly Love Songs' sequence in 1984's 'Give My Regards To Broad Street'|
Since his 1984 film 'Give My Regards To Broad Street', Paul hasn't done much acting. He's done a handful of walk-on parts in shows and charity sketches, most recently for the UK's 'Sport Relief' where he appeared in the Frank Spencer sketch.
According to Deadline, Paul has been cast in the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean film 'Dead Men Tell No Tales'. Rumours are rife to what Paul's role will be in the film and if it will be much like Keith Richard's role as Captain Teague, Jack Sparrow’s father, in 'On Stranger Tides'. As we know, Johnny Depp, who plays Jack Sparrow, is a long time friend of McCartney, appearing in Paul's recent music videos from his album 'New'.
Now, Paul has been tied to many film projects before but they've always just been rumours. This one, however seems to be true and even though the film is finished, they're adding an extra scene on with McCartney in time for the film's release in May.
Could this mean that Paul is forsaking his music career to become an actor? Perhaps not.
