Penelope Cruz’s Pirates Role Revealed

As Pirates of The Caribbean 4 rolls along nicely towards production, I have a snippet of information to pass along to you.

MTV recently spoke to Jerry Bruckheimer, producer of the franchise, who dished on the role that will be played by Penelope Cruz, who was cast earlier this year.

“She plays the daughter of Blackbeard. She’s the daughter of the bad guy.”

The bad guy in question will be played by 44 Inch Chest’s Ian McShane who is confirmed as playing the infamous pirate.

“She brings a lot of humor to it. And the fact that she’s so feisty…[there’s] a little romance between [Depp’s] Captain Jack and the character that Penelope plays.”

Well there’s a huge surprise. The two best looking people in the cast will hook up – shocking.

My only problem with casting Cruz and McShane as father and daughter is that Cruz born and raised in Spain and has a very strong accent. Now this could mean that McShane will try a Spanish accent, Cruz will try (and fail) at an English one or it’ll be explained in the script that she was raised in Spain. Either that or they’ll just pretend that everything’s normal.

Well they might be able to explain away the accent, but how are they going to cover up the fact that Cruz could be well be a seahorse?
