Back in June we were alerted that Keith Richards had been roaming around the Disney set of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest again and it looked like he was ready to jump on board the cast of the third installment.

In the report we mentioned that it was not stated what exact role Richards would be playing and that there was a small possibility that he would not be Jack Sparrow's father. Well, let's push all that aside, as AP has recently confirmed Richards on Pirates 3 including his role as Jack's metro father.

According to AP, Johnny Depp has confirmed that Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards is lined up to play the swashbuckling father to Jack Sparrow in the third Pirates of the Caribbean installment.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer said Richards would have a cameo role as the father of the flamboyant Captain Jack Sparrow, played by Depp, in the third Pirates movie, which is due to resume filming next month in California.

Depp, 43, has said he adopted the body language and mannerisms of the veteran guitarist to create Captain Jack's character.

"We're all looking forward to the idea of Keith coming in and doing a cameo," Depp told a London news conference to promote Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, which opens in Britain on Thursday.

"You never say it's definite until the guy steps on the set and the camera is rolling. But it's looking very, very good," he said.

"I can't wait to see him — well, if he doesn't kill himself falling out of coconut trees," Bloom said. "Very rock and roll."

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest comes to theatres on July 7th, 2006.
