Johnny Depp's Pirate Soccer

Johnny Depp has installed televisions throughout the set of 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides'.

The actor - who has reprised his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the fourth instalment of the swashbuckling Disney franchise - is a keen soccer fan and was determined that he and his co-stars would not miss the sport's current World Cup tournament while working on the movie.

A source told gossip website Absolute Now: "There are TVs all over the set and regular breaks for big games during the World Cup.

"Johnny likes his soccer and with so many Brits on the cast and crew it wouldn't be fair to have them miss the action."

The 'Sleepy Hollow' star is not the only celebrity taking a keen interest in the World Cup, which is taking place in South Africa.

Last week, Matthew McConaughey - who has 23-month-old son Levi and five-month-old daughter Vida with his Brazilian girlfriend Camila Alves - expressed his intentions to travel to watch the tournament if his home nation progress further than the group stages of the competition.

He vowed: "If the US get to play Brazil, I'll be there."
