I just watched the fifth Pirates of The Caribbean movie, Dead Men Tell No Tales, and noticed a potentially familiar figure during one of the flashbacks. Specifically, during a flashback to when Jack Sparrow became a Captain for the first time, the movie showed a pirate standing behind him as he surveyed his crew and his tribute:

I couldn't help but think this man in the background looks similar to, and is dressed similarly to Jack's dad, Edward Teague, from the third movie, At World's End:

Is this just a doppelganger, or is that really Jack Sparrow's father behind him in the flashback?

  • that's just a PA who accidentally stepped in the shot ;) – Mr. Kennedy Jan 10 '18 at 18:02
  • Shouldn't Teague should be much older than Jack? in this he looks like he's in same age group as Jack – Vishwa Jan 11 '18 at 8:01
  • By the way, the picture quality is pretty good. – onurcanbektas Jan 11 '18 at 17:04

Yes, he is Edward Teague and looks like he didn't change his coat since then. Filthy Pirate!

Teague, Jack, and the surviving crew members watched the end of El Matador Del Mar. Teague was standing on the forecastle behind Jack when several crew members offered Jack a tribute. Teague looked from behind his son as he was crowned with his new belongings

Wikia

According to IMDB, Alexander Scheer was cast as Young Teague.

    while the wiki states it as such, there's no citation anywhere that proves that it is actually intended to be Teague – DForck42 Jan 10 '18 at 17:16

    @DForck42: Do you mean Wikia is not a reliable source ? – Rahul Jan 10 '18 at 17:17

    kinda, yeah. imdb listing Young Teague as a character definitely helps – DForck42 Jan 10 '18 at 17:24

    @Rahul Without citation, Wikia (and even Wikipedia) sometimes can't be reliable sources. – Andrew T. Jan 11 '18 at 4:56
