Russell Brand is making quite the name for himself here in the states. And now there’s a rumor floating around Hollywood that he’s in negotiations to star in the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean movie. According to The Sun, he’s up for the part of Jonathan, the younger brother of Johnny Depp’s popular Captain Jack Sparrow, as part of a $ 10 million deal with Disney.
We have to say, he does remind us in a way of Johhny Depp. A source tells the Sun, “There couldn’t be a role more perfectly suited. There’s a lot of Jack Sparrow in his mannerisms and behavior. Depp’s accent isn’t a million miles away from Russell’s either. Russell joining the Sparrows alongside Johnny and Keith Richards as their dad will complete the ultimate on-screen pirate family.”
IMDb.com also reports, "Russell joining the Sparrows alongside Johnny and Keith Richards as their dad will complete the ultimate on-screen pirate family."
