Moore died Tuesday in Switzerland after "a short but brave battle with cancer," said his children, Deborah, Geoffrey and Christian, in a statement.

"The affection our father felt whenever he walked on to a stage or in front of a camera buoyed him hugely and kept him busy working into his 90th year, through to his last appearance in November 2016 on stage at London's Royal Festival Hall," the statement said. "The capacity crowd cheered him on and off stage, shaking the very foundations of the building just a short distance from where he was born."

Moore played James Bond in seven films between 1973 and 1985.

Disney may be the latest victim of a worldwide hacking attack that has brought hospitals and businesses to their knees online.

Disney’s CEO Bob Iger did not confirm that the latest Pirates movie was the one being held for ransom, but he did admit that a threat was issued.

Disney is working with the FBI to track down the origins of the cyber attack and has said that it will not pay the ransom, Deadline reported.

“Dead Men Tell No Tales” is scheduled for release May 26.

This is similar to a case that threatened Netflix. A ransom hacker released episodes of the newest season of “Orange Is the New Black” when Netflix refused the cyber attacker’s demands, the LA Times reported.

The Pirates franchise has grossed more $3.73 billion worldwide, the LA Times reported.

He made the announcement on his social media accounts with the simple #PiratesLife.

McCartney is walking the pirate footsteps of another rock legend. The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards has appeared in two of the Disney films as the father of Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow, Rolling Stone reported.

The tweet did not say what role McCartney is playing or whether if it was a fleeting cameo or a more in-depth character.

E! reported that McCartney will portray a jail guard.

Deadline reported last year that McCartney filmed his scene after production ended and is being described as “an extra big set-piece scene.”

“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” hits theaters on May 26.

McCartney and Depp have paired up multiple times over the past few years.

Depp was featured in two McCartney music videos: 2012’s “My Valentine” and 2013’s “Queenie Eye.”

The former Beatle also recorded with Depp’s band Hollywood Vampires. The band is made up of Depp, Alice Cooper, and Joe Perry, Rolling Stone reported.

“I had had a really nice conversation with Paul that morning,” she said. “He was in my home, he left to go to the event, and so I was expecting him back in the early afternoon, evening. And we had plans with his daughter, too, to decorate a Christmas tree that night.”

Later that day, a family friend came over to deliver the heartbreaking news.

“I think I was in the kitchen and then I heard somebody come in and I looked and it was a friend of mine. Somebody that Paul knew, too. [A] family friend,” she continued. “And she looked like she just lost somebody, you know, she looked very upset. And then other people started arriving, including the two young men that Paul grew up with that were trying to get him out of the car.”

Despite the help of Walker’s family and friends, his mother admitted that she sometimes still found it difficult to continue on without him.

“I felt guilty for even feeling like that, but I really honestly would wish that I didn’t have to wake up in the morning,” she said. “I would never have taken my life, but I really felt that way. Because when you wake up, you have to realize it’s real, and you relive it all over again.”

Caleb, who shot scenes for “Furious 7” as his brother’s character, noted that while the experience was difficult, he’s glad he did it.

“I always wanted to be like him growing up, and so stepping into his shoes was special, but it was too soon, you know, looking back at it. Like, it was, like, just a few months afterward,” he said. “But the most special part was getting to know his other family that he had been working with for 15 years. Every cast member, every person on the set all had a special, unique bond with Paul.”

MTV Awards salute 'Beauty and the Beast,' 'Stranger Things'

Film hit "Beauty and the Beast" and Netflix newcomer "Stranger Things" were the night's big winners with two trophies apiece as MTV partied with its Movie & TV Awards show.

For this, the 26th edition of what was formerly known as the MTV Movie Awards, TV was added to the mix. "Stranger Things" was decreed the Show of the Year, and its cast member, Millie Bobby Brown, was named Best Actor in a Show.

"Beauty and the Beast" was the Movie of the Year, with its star, Emma Watson, the Best Actor in a Movie.

But the awards had another trick up its sleeve, introducing a policy of breaking down gender barriers, as men and women competed jointly in the acting categories.

The policy was put into practice at the top of the show by presenter Asia Kate Dillion, who proudly noted she has been able to break down gender barriers as "the first openly non-binary actor to play an openly non-binary actor on a major TV show," Showtime's drama series "Billions." (A non-binary person is someone who doesn't identify with either gender.) Then she presented the award to Watson.

"Acting is about the ability to put yourself in someone else's shoes, and that doesn't need to be separated into two different categories," Watson said in receiving her trophy,

Despite glowering skies and dime-size hailstones, MTV was heralding the start of the summer viewing season with its annual shindig. The red carpet outside Los Angeles' Shrine Auditorium became a swamp as luminaries made their water-logged arrival for the shindig. But inside, it was dry (except for flowing cocktails among audience members) as Adam Devine hosted the proceedings.

Tongue-in-cheek, Devine described himself as a progressive personality fully equal to the night's high-minded theme.

As the caption "Adam Gets It" flashed on the screen, Devine declared, "I love Hugh Jackman. But I call him Hugh Jack-PERSON."

And turning to "Beauty and the Beast," he said, "I call it 'Multidimensional woman with her own dynamic traits, and the beast.' "

The show maintained its traditional irreverence with awards recognizing the best duo (Jackman and Dafne Keen of the film "Logan"), best villain (Jeffrey Dean Morgan, "The Walking Dead"), best tearjerker (hit TV drama "This Is Us"), and best kiss (Ashton Sanders and Jharrel Jerone of "Moonlight").

That last award was presented by co-stars of the film smash "Get Out": a very blond Allison Williams in shimmering miniskirt, alongside a nervous-looking Lil Rel Howery.

"Are you scared of me?" Williams asked him.

"I'm AFRAID — that's the word I'm gonna use," Howery said.

"Ever since the movie came out," said Williams, "for the last couple of months — "

"— Black dudes don't mess with you," said Howery, whose character in the film has good reason to be scared of hers.

A new award, Best Fight Against the System, went to the film "Hidden Figures," which tells the story of a team of African-American women mathematicians who served a vital role at NASA during the space program's early years.

The mission of the filmmakers, said one of its stars, Taraji P. Henson, was to dispel a certain deep-seated social myth "so another young girl wouldn't grow up thinking that her mind wasn't capable of grasping math and science."

The cast of the "Fast and Furious" franchise received the Generation Award, accepted by Vin Diesel, who thanked a generation of fans "willing to accept this multicultural franchise, where it didn't matter what color your skin was or what country you are from — when you're family, you're family."

Trevor Noah of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" was named Best Host.

"There is one person I aspire to be every single day," he said, "and that is my mom: a powerful, strong black woman who never listened when people told her she couldn't be more."

Then, among his thanks, he voiced gratitude to President Donald Trump "for the comedy."

Even one of the night's biggest awards couldn't escape a bit of mischief-making. Presenting Movie of the Year, Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn comically bobbled the title (a la the Oscars), first announcing "La La Light," then "Moonland." Then they got it right: "Beauty and the Beast."

___

This story has been corrected to the proper spelling of actor Lil Rel Howery, not Lil Rey Howery.
