He made the announcement on his social media accounts with the simple #PiratesLife.

McCartney is walking the pirate footsteps of another rock legend. The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards has appeared in two of the Disney films as the father of Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow, Rolling Stone reported.

The tweet did not say what role McCartney is playing or whether if it was a fleeting cameo or a more in-depth character.

E! reported that McCartney will portray a jail guard.

Deadline reported last year that McCartney filmed his scene after production ended and is being described as “an extra big set-piece scene.”

“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” hits theaters on May 26.

McCartney and Depp have paired up multiple times over the past few years.

Depp was featured in two McCartney music videos: 2012’s “My Valentine” and 2013’s “Queenie Eye.”

The former Beatle also recorded with Depp’s band Hollywood Vampires. The band is made up of Depp, Alice Cooper, and Joe Perry, Rolling Stone reported.

Later that day, a family friend came over to deliver the heartbreaking news.

“I think I was in the kitchen and then I heard somebody come in and I looked and it was a friend of mine. Somebody that Paul knew, too. [A] family friend,” she continued. “And she looked like she just lost somebody, you know, she looked very upset. And then other people started arriving, including the two young men that Paul grew up with that were trying to get him out of the car.”

Despite the help of Walker’s family and friends, his mother admitted that she sometimes still found it difficult to continue on without him.

“I felt guilty for even feeling like that, but I really honestly would wish that I didn’t have to wake up in the morning,” she said. “I would never have taken my life, but I really felt that way. Because when you wake up, you have to realize it’s real, and you relive it all over again.”

Caleb, who shot scenes for “Furious 7” as his brother’s character, noted that while the experience was difficult, he’s glad he did it.

“I always wanted to be like him growing up, and so stepping into his shoes was special, but it was too soon, you know, looking back at it. Like, it was, like, just a few months afterward,” he said. “But the most special part was getting to know his other family that he had been working with for 15 years. Every cast member, every person on the set all had a special, unique bond with Paul.”

I will look for you. I will find you. And I will take you up on that offer for a free sandwich.

>> Read more trending news

A sandwich shop in British Columbia found a way to lure actor Liam Neeson to its restaurant in New Westminster, CBC News reported.

Neeson, the star of the 2008 movie “Taken,” was in British Columbia to film “Hard Powder.” Alex Johrden, spokesman for Big Star Sandwich Co., told CNBC that shop employees heard about the filming and put a sign outside the restaurant on Tuesday.

The sign read “Liam Neeson eats here for free,” and hours later the actor showed up at the restaurant and, using his gruff voice, said, “Where’s my sandwich?” Johrden told CNBC.

Johrden said Neeson posed for photographs but did not eat at the restaurant.

In “Hard Powder,” Neeson plays an honest snowplow driver whose son is murdered by a local drug kingpin. 

Ukraine bans actor Steven Seagal as threat to national security 

Actor Steven Seagal is under siege from the Ukraine.

>> Read more trending news

Seagal has been cited as a national security threat by the Ukrainian government and has been banned entry to the country for five years, The Guardian reported. News of Seagal’s banishment was confirmed by the Ukrainian security service, the Guardian reported.

Seagal’s friendship with Russian President Vladimir Putin and his outspoken support for his policies are the reason behind the Ukrainian action. The actor called Russia’s 2014 annexation of Crimea from Ukraine “very reasonable” and later played with his blues band at a concert in Crimea put on by a pro-Putin biker club, with the flag of eastern Ukraine separatists flying onstage.

Seagal, the star of the 1992 movie “Under Siege,” along with “Kill Switch,” “Out for a Kill” and “Driven to Kill,” was granted citizenship by Russia in November and was personally handed a passport by Putin.

The letter by Ukrainian security noted decisions to ban people from the country are made when a person has “committed socially dangerous actions … that contradict the interests of maintaining Ukraine’s security.

In 2015, Seagal was included in a proposed blacklist of foreign cultural figures who “speak out in support of violating the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine” along with French actor Gérard Depardieu and many Russian artists, the Guardian reported. Ukraine later banned Depardieu and has also blacklisted more than 100 Russian films.

The actors shared a kiss at the podium and were joined by guests including Hawn’s daughter, Kate Hudson; Reese Witherspoon; and Quentin Tarantino.

“Can we just get married? We’ve never had a celebration like this before,” Hawn said.

The two actors thanked their families and each other during Thursday’s presentation.

“Thank you to my beautiful daughter and my other beautiful daughter,” Hawn said. “This means more to me as I start reflecting on things. I was a dancer and I carried my dancing shoes up here looking for an agent. I couldn’t find an agent, I found a fabulous dentist but I couldn’t find an agent.”

“That star is part of ‘yes.’ I said yes to Kurt Russell. I said yes to Bill Hudson, and without Bill I wouldn’t have had Katie and Oliver. I wish my mom and my dad could see me.”

“I owe a special debt of appreciation to my family,” Russell said. “Thanks to my kids Boston, Oliver, Kate and Wyatt. Any father would be blessed to be gifted with the lifetime you have brought me.

“Goldie to you, I owe my wonderful life,” Russell added. “Simply put Goldie, I cherish you. All of the stars in the sky or the boulevard don’t hold a candle to that. There’s no one else I’d rather be next to than Goldie Hawn.”

Hawn, 71, and Russell, 66, have been together since 1983, but have co-starred together in one film, in 1987’s “Overboard,” People reported. Both actors have new movies coming out this month. Russell will star with Chris Pratt in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” which debuts Friday; Hawn stars in “Snatched,” which opens nationally on May 12, People reported.
