    Keith Richards signs on to do third 'Pirates of the Caribbean'

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Keith Richards and the tresses that inspired Johnny Depp's natty-haired pirate in Pirates of the Caribbean will both have a role in the film's third installment.

    Pirates producer Jerry Bruckheimer announced Tuesday at the Consumer Electronics show in Las Vegas that Richards will appear in the upcoming sequel "Pirates of the Caribbean: At the World's End," reports the trade paper Daily Variety.

    The announcement ends years of rumors about Richards' potential involvement in the popular swashbuckling franchise.

    Depp once told The Associated Press his portrayal of loopy pirate Jack Sparrow in 2003's mega hit Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and last year's Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl is based on a "part rock-star, Keith Richards-kind-of-guy."

    Richards has long been known for his hard partying ways and wild, beaded hair.
    No other details about his film character were announced.

    A call on Wednesday to Rolling Stones publicist Fran Curtis was not immediately returned.

    *rolls eyes* How can they call this news? It denounced no rumors, because there have already been reports in the dailies about his scenes in the movies, and his role has been listed on IMDB for months now.

          Is that Keith Richards or a Mummy?!!

          Are you sure that isn't a press release for The Mummy 3?

            OMG - He really looks like Jack Sparrow's father. Doesn't he??? For stunt casting, this is pretty good.

              They call it a Press Op. An Official Announcement is one way to market the film... This Spring and Summer is going to be the most contentious season of summer blockbusters in a very, very long time... I am getting ready by looking for ways to aquire discount tickets...
