PAUL MCCARTNEY IS INDEED IN THE NEW "PIRATES" MOVIE

We're opening the latest in Disney's "The Pirates of the Caribbean" franschise at the Bijou today (the fifth installment, "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales", to be precise) and we're happy to report the most exciting performance in the film is not that of returning swashbuckler Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow, but former-Beatle Sir Paul McCartney! The music legend has a brief but delightful cameo as Sparrow's Uncle Jack (and this isn't his first foray into acting, of course). How'd he land the gig? Series regular and Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards asked him to do it, of course! You can read the whole story here. And don't miss the "Pirates 5" this week at the Bijou!
