The post, captioned with a #PiratesLife, gives a glimpse of McCartney’s character. While E Online reports that McCartney plays a jail guard, his swashbuckling wardrobe gives us a funny feeling that “Pirate Paul” will be more than just a glorified security guard in the film. We can’t wait to him in action. The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise has been a Hollywood juggernaut since The Curse of the Black Pearl, the first installation of the series, made waves (and grossed $654M worldwide) following its release in 2003. The Jerry Bruckheimer-produced tentpole franchise follows the swashbuckling misadventures of Captain Jack Sparrow, played with rockstar swagger by Johnny Depp. From the his wardrobe, to his physical mannerisms, to his generally mischievous devil-may-care attitude, the charismatic pirate has an entertainingly familiar rocker vibe–and that is no accident. From the earliest days of the series, Depp has been public about his inspiration for the role: The Rolling Stones guitarist and ageless purveyor of badass-ery Keith Richards.Depp has spoken frequently about using Richards’ persona as the basis for Sparrow on several occasions, and the Stones icon has taken the homage in stride, even coming on for featured cameos as Jack Sparrow’s father in the later films. Watch Richards and Depp talk about their personal and cinematic rapport ahead of the release of the fourth “Pirates” film, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, in 2011 (via ScreenJunkies News):As anticipation builds for the release of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales on May 26th, former Beatle and endlessly cool musical and cultural icon Paul McCartney has shared a sneak peak at his cameo in the upcoming film, assuring fans that the old-school British rocker swagger is alive and well in the series’ newest installment. Check out a photo of “Pirate Paul” in full regalia below, via his Instagram:

By Simon Evans(REUTERS) – FIFA’s head of global development Arsene Wenger wants to see a change in the offside law which could end a run of contentious decisions in the game since the introduction of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) but no decision is imminent.Wenger, who was manager of Premier League club Arsenal for 22 years, wants a player to be deemed onside if any part of his body which can legitimately score a goal is level or behind the last defender.It will flip the current rule which states the player is in an offside position if any part of his body he can score with is beyond the line of the last defender.However, the International Football Association Board (IFAB), football’s lawmaking body, does not have any concrete proposal for a law change on the agenda for their February 29, Annual General Meeting. IFAB’s general secretary Lukas Brud told Reuters that any discussion of changes would be a general one and ruled out an immediate change.“This particular proposal is not on the agenda for the AGM,” said Brud, adding that any changes to the laws need to go through a consultation process and trials before any concrete change is considered. “We are not going to take a decision on something like this in 10 days,” he said. IFAB may discuss ideas for changing the offside laws at the meeting, in general terms, but no decision on a concrete proposal will be made, Brud added.The use of video review has been a source of constant criticism since its recent introduction, including concern about the time to take decisions and the precision with which offsides are judged. The system sparked another controversy last week in the Premier League when Wolverhampton Wanderers had a goal ruled out against Leicester City after Pedro Neto’s heel was adjudged to be fractionally offside in the build-up.“You will be not offside if any part of the body that can score a goal is in line with the last defender, even if other parts of the attacker’s body are in front,” Wenger told British media. “That will sort it out and you will no longer have decisions about millimetres and a fraction of the attacker being in front of the defensive line.”Wenger later said in a FIFA statement that he was not making a formal proposal but mentioning a possibility that might be worth thinking about.“My objective is to continuously think about ways to improve our game and we shouldn’t be afraid to debate them in public,” he said, adding he was well aware of the IFAB process for introducing law changes.
