Captain Jack Gives Back

After filming scenes for the third entry to the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise, everyone's favorite swashbuckler took time to meet and greet his fans.

While co-star Orlando Bloom tends to duck out of the fanfare, Johnny Depp has continually shown his appreciation for the people who've made "Pirates" one of the strongest box-office beasts.

As filming continues in the Redondo Beach area of Southern California, Jack Sparrow's ship, The Black Pearl, has been spotted floating off the shores, lit by torches at night.

"Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End" hits theaters May 2007.
