Johnny Depp ‘felt like being in a band’ working with Keith Richards

Rolling Stones guitarist appears once again as Depp's father in new movie

Johnny Depp has chatted about how he felt like a rock star while working with Keith Richards on the Pirates Of The Caribbean series.

The Rolling Stones guitarist reprises his role as Depp character Captain Jack Sparrow‘s father Captain Teague in the new film, On Stranger Tides.

It is well-documented that Depp based his portrayal in the hit series on Richards. Now, Depp has paid tribute to the guitarist once more. He told the Associated Press: “To be able to bring him back into the Pirates fold, where he most certainly belongs, was a gas. Just spending a couple days sharing a trailer, it was as close, I suppose, as being in a rock’n’roll band with him as you can get.”

Responding to speculation about a fifth movie in the Disney franchise, he added it would need: “Essentially the same ingredients that have gone into each and every one, especially this one. I would be in if it was right, for sure.”

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides opens in the UK on May 18.
