PAUL MCCARTNEY, who filmed a cameo for the upcoming “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” debuted his character in full swashbuckler regalia on social media Saturday.

In a promo photo captioned #PiratesLife, McCartney is seen with long, charcoal-colored hair, heavy eye shadow and a bandana under his weathered pirates’ cap. The bassist is also holding a hand of playing cards while staring ominously at the camera.

McCartney isn’t the first rocker to board Johnny Depp’s Disney franchise: The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards has played Captain Teague, the father of Depp’s Jack Sparrow, in a pair of “Pirates of the Caribbean” films.

While McCartney did not offer any hint at what role he will be playing in the upcoming “Pirates” film, E! Online reports that a cast list revealed that the Beatle would portray a jail guard. Deadline reported in March 2016 that the McCartney sequence, “an extra big set-piece scene,” was filmed after production had initially ended in order to add the singer’s cameo to the film.
