The Pirates of the Caribbean saga began in 2003 with The Curse of the Black Pearl, back when Johnny Depp was a mere 40 years old. The fifth installment in the franchise, Dead Men Tell No Tales, opens two weeks before Depp’s 54th birthday. With a sixth movie already in development, Depp could be playing Captain Jack Sparrow well into the next decade — and beyond! And you know what? That’s just fine with Depp. In fact, he really likes the idea of playing Sparrow as an old man. (Click on the media bar below to hear Johnny Depp)
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales opens in theaters May 26.
