Johnny Depp reportedly wants Rolling Stones rocker Keith Richards to appear in the Pirates Of The Caribbean: CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL sequel - as his father.

The hunky star famously based his character Jack Sparrow on the aged rocker in the celebrated film, and wants to pay tribute to Richards by landing him a role in the follow-up.

A source says, "Johnny was slightly embarrassed by all the praise for Pirates because he was really just being Keith.

"A good way of thanking Keith would be to get him to do a walk-on in the sequel."
