Ever since this past summer -- when a rumor leaked out that Keith Richards might have a role in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End -- folks have been itching to know more about the part, as well as what Richards would look like all decked out in Pirate garb. Well, a scooper sent in a pic to Coming Soon that features Johnny Depp (as Captain Jack Sparrow), Martin Klebba (as Marty) and -- whaddya know -- Keith Richards (as Captain Grant Sparrow).

So, if you didn't believe the announcement that Richards actually does have a part (and, trust me -- things went back and forth so often, I don't blame you for being a bit skeptical), then this pic should certainly serve as proof of his involvement. There were also a bunch of rumors that claimed Richards showed up to the set blasted each day, and had to literally be carried from his trailer to the set. Judging by this picture, the dude certainly looks somewhat tanked -- then again, that could be the way he looks sober. Scary. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End is set to swing into theaters on May 25.
