He's the ultimate bad guy pirate and if he does indeed sign up for the 4th in the series as Johnny Depps younger pirate brother then we'll definitely have some screen presence. His figure, poise, mannerisms and voice I cannot figure why I didn't make the connection beforehand. Brand close to signing for 'Pirates 4'? Tuesday, November 4 2008, 09:25 GMT By Sarah Rollo Rex Features Russell Brand has reportedly been approached to appear in the fourth Pirates Of The Caribbean movie. The comedian would apparently play Jonathan, the younger brother of Johnny Depp's character Jack Sparrow. The Sun says the deal could be worth £5 million for Brand, who quit the BBC last week over the Andrew Sachs prank phonecall row. "There couldn't be a role more perfectly suited," a source told the newspaper. "There's a lot of Jack Sparrow in his mannerisms and behaviour. 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." Disney confirmed a fourth movie in the franchise earlier this year, with Johnny Depp signing a record £32 million deal to reprise the lead role.
