HUGH JACKMAN AS CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW?

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN WITHOUT JOHNNY DEPP--IMPOSSIBLE


Who knew--Johnny Depp was not the original actor picked to play the character of Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.

One of the writers had written the character with Hugh Jackman in mind and named the character Jack. Disney however did not think Jackman was a big "enough star". Johnny Depp had a $100 million dollar movie under his belt (Sleepy Hollow) and was deemed to be a big enough star to play the role.

Would Jackman have worked out as our beloved pirate? Perhaps. He can be sexy, dark, and witty--all characteristics need to play Jack Sparrow. 

Anyway, don't feel bad for Jackman. He's currently working on Wolverine, and Gossip Pearls can't wait!!!

We love to see Jackman prancing around without his shirt on, YUM!

Johnny Depp was finally nominated for an Oscar for his work on Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Unfortunately, the Pirates movies that followed have not been as good as the first, but Depp continues to reprise the role that has been the most successful role for him.

For better or worse, Depp will always be known as Captain Jack Sparrow and we love that!!!
