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.”
