Ian McShane up for Blackbeard on Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean 4

Article from the Hollywood Reporter on Ian McShane possibly joining the cast of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. You might remember him from his role as Tai Lung in Kung Fu Panda:

Ian McShane is in negotiations to play the villain in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” the fourth installment of the Disney movie series being directed by Rob Marshall.

McShane will play legendary pirate Blackbeard — whose real name was Edward Teach — who piloted the ship Queen Anne’s Revenge.

McShane will join Johnny Depp, reprising his role of Captain Jack Sparrow, and Penelope Cruz, Sparrow’s foil and equal in many ways, in a tale that revolves around the Fountain of Youth.

A working British actor since the 1970s, McShane gained notice Stateside for his work in HBO’s “Deadwood,” where he played the brutal owner of a brothel. McShane starred in the short-lived TV series “Kings” and did voice work in “Coraline” and “Kung Fu Panda.”

Terry Rossio and Ted Elliot wrote the script. Jerry Bruckheimer is producing.
