FOX NEWS.COM Roger Friedman Reports:
A not terribly sober Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones has filmed his cameo as Johnny Depp’s swashbuckling dad in “Pirates of the Caribbean 3.”
Richards, no stranger to substances and liquids, was left to his own devices in his trailer before his big scene. That wasn’t a good idea. When the time came to shoot, he was a bit wobbly. “If you’d wanted straight, then you got the wrong man," Richards replied huskily. To keep him straight, director Gore Verbinski held Richards by the shins.
Richards’ pirate costume, sources say, closely resembles Depp’s, with a different colored bandana. The two had such a good time together that Depp kept a souvenir from Richards’ short visit: a set of stairs built for Richards to get in and out of his trailer, which he signed to Depp with the salutation, “A step too far.”
