Rock & roll “father and son” Keith Richards and Johnny Depp are Rolling Stone’s newest cover boys in their latest issue. A hilarious Q&A with the “blood brothers” is expected to go live tomorrow.
The Rolling Stones guitarist was so impressed with Depp’s acting skills on the latest POTC movie, the actor now calls him “Two-Take Richards.” Depp has said, “The anticipation was mad. Everyone was like, ‘Is he going to do it? Is he going to do it?’ And then whammo, he arrived at eight o’clock in the morning, totally prepped and ready to go. Obviously, Keith Richards – the guy invented charisma. But what I didn’t expect was he was going to be such a great actor. I started calling him ‘Two-Take Richards’. It was like this gunslinger arrived in town, charmed all the women and impressed all the men, and then split.”
Richards plays Depp’s pirate character’s father in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, out May 25.
