The Pirates of the Caribbean series is still crankin’ out new movies, and in the latest installment, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Paul McCartney has a cameo.

While details surrounding McCartney’s character have been kept secret, E! Online reports that a cast list revealed his character: a pirate jail guard. And just what does a pirate jail guard look like? See below.

Shiver me timbers—McCartney’s got a look that’s certainly Jack Sparrow-approved!

And speaking of Sparrow and classic rockers, Rolling Stone reports that Johnny Depp channeled The Rolling StonesKeith Richards when looking for inspiration for his Jack Sparrow character. Richards actually went on to play Captain Teague, Sparrow’s father, in two of the previous Pirates movies.  

So, what do you think? Are you going to see the movie to spot McCartney’s cameo?
