Richards Will Star In Pirates Of The Caribbean 3

KEITH RICHARDS' tumble out of a coconut tree in Fiji will not stop him making a cameo appearance in forthcoming blockbuster PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 3. The ROLLING STONES guitarist was diagnosed with a blood clot on his brain after the accident in April (06), but following skull surgery doctors have now confirmed he will be well enough to star in the sequel. Pirates Of The Caribbean star JOHNNY DEPP based his character CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW on ageing rocker Richards, who will play his father in the third film. TOM HOLLANDER, who plays LORD CUTLER BECKETT in the movies, admits, "We were all worried when we heard about Keith's fall, but we've just heard that he's still going to appear in the film. "I'm really looking forward to meeting him. I've been in the same room as him before, but sadly at opposite ends."
