It's a pirate's life for us! Fans will get a look at a young Jack Sparrow in the fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, and get excited because the Johnny Depp doppelgänger is real!
Actor Anthony De La Torre is putting on the swashbuckling boots in flashback scenes in the Disney series — and he gave fans a first look on his Facebook page.
"The word is out… I am the young Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Collaborating with Johnny Depp in creating this character was one of the most thrilling experiences of my life," he captioned a photo of himself in character. Disclaimer: Disney did use a bit of CGI to combine a young version of Johnny's face with Anthony's.

"Excited to see what the future holds," he added.
Not much is known about Anthony, aside from the fact that he is giving us some serious Johnny Depp circa 21 Jump Street vibes. However, we learned a few things about the hottie from his social media accounts.
He's a musician
Just like Johnny, Anthony is the front man of a rock band named DE LA TORRE, and he will be going on tour soon. He also played a drummer in Lords Of Chaos, a movie about the Norwegian band Hellhammer.
The rocker is a second-generation Cuban-American from Ohio. "To have Johnny Depp watch you play Jack Sparrow was one of strangest experiences of my life but also the coolest — just getting to play this character that is loved by millions of people,” he told local Toledo paper The Blade. "We dressed up the exact same. He would do a bit. I would watch him, study him. He’d get off the boat, and I’d walk on the boat and do exactly what he did.”
He's a real-life pirate.
Ok, we might be exaggerating a bit here, but Anthony definitely loves life at sea. "Sailing the Caribbean," he captioned a photo on a boat on Instagram. "Life's an adventure… Embrace it."
He loves coffee.
Anthony is a guy after our own heart. "Ready for the day… #caffeine," he captioned this selfie.
Sorry, ladies. He's taken.
Anthony posted this photo with an unknown lady on his Facebook, and also stepped out on the red carpet with actress Lana Condor.
