One of the Forgetting Sarah Marshall punch-lines, known as Russell Brand, is maybe (not quite sure) going to be a pirate in the next Pirates of the Caribbean. Of course there will be another Pirates movie; whether you like it or not! There’s no point in fighting it.
Anyway, recently Brand has admitted to it being a possibility. He is assumed to be playing the role of Jack Sparrows’ brother. And if you squint your eyes, you can kind of see that he looks like a hairier, chubbier version of Johnny Depp. Maybe like a distant cousin. Or even adopted into the family, probably not blood related though.
His interview with Access Hollywood revealed this much:
“There’s been some talk of doing a ‘Pirates’ movie…But, I’ve got eight other things to do… So I don’t know if there’ll be time to be a pirate, I’ve got enough of that in me private life…I think it’s a possibility.”
Well… there was never a more well thought out statement than that.
Let’s just get him to Judd Apatow‘s Sarah Marshall spin-off, Get Him To The Greek and leave this whole pirate thing behind.
What do you think? Are you interested in seeing Brand as a pirate?
