Tim Burton <3 Johnny Depp for sure

So there are some big rumors flying around about the 4th Pirates of the Caribbean movie which might have it’s own trilogy. I hope they don’t push for the trilogy personally because that will probably lead to forcing out another 3 Pirates movies without trying to make them good. But this might not be the case if one of the rumors is true. Supposedly Gore Verbinski (the guy who directed the first 3 Pirates movies if you didn’t know) is returning to direct this movie but there’s whisperings about Tim Burton maybe taking over as director. If this is true, then Burton and Depp are going to be spending a lot of time together since Johnny Depp is playing the Mad Hatter (like I mentioned here) in Burton’s Alice in Wonderland movie. Seriously I always knew they had a thing for each other lol 😉 .

Anyway, Burton would probably do a good job with the Pirates movies especially since they’re supposed to be focusing on the past (at least that’s what I’ve heard) when Captain Jack and Barbossa were looking for the Fountain of Youth. I think it’s very plausible that this is what the 4th movie is going to be about because another one of the rumors is that Geoffrey Rush has signed on for the 4th movie as well. I do think it would be a better idea for Orlando and Keira to return in this movie seeing as how Will Turner is now immortal and Elizabeth isn’t. They could even make it a few years after the end of the last movie so Will’s son could be older and go looking for Jack’s help or something. But currently I’ve heard no rumors talking about Keira or Orlando returning so that probably isn’t going to happen.

Captain Jack’s brother (when did he ever mention having a brother and where was he in the last movie when all the pirates faced off?) is also rumored to show up in this movie. From what I’ve heard, it’s either going to be Sacha Baron Cohen or Russell Brand (you know that crazy guy with the biggest white guy fro I’ve ever seen that scared people at the MTV award show lol). Sacha’s played in a movie with Johnny Depp before (he was Pirelli in Sweeney Todd which I still need to see!) but I haven’t really seen anything of either comedian’s work. I do think it would be good to have someone with a sense of humor playing Jack’s brother though 😀 . That’s all for the current rumors though.

Don’t miss The Office episode called “Business Ethics” tonight at 9 on NBC and don’t click here unless you want to read a summary of the plot. Also check out this very cool Nightmare Before Christmas theme for Firefox that I just downloaded today. It’s a very cool theme for Halloween.

Wait… what the?

Have you ever just clicked through imdb to see the odd movies and tv shows that actors have played in? Well that’s what I was doing and I’ve come up with a pretty good list. Some of the titles are just enough to make you laugh.

The Calcium Kid (2004)-Orlando Bloom as Jimmy Connelly
This isn’t even that old but I’ve never heard of it lol. It looks like an 80’s move from the picture.

Walker Texas Ranger episode “The Prodigal Son” (1994)- Tobey Maguire as Duane Parsons

No Dessert, Dad, Till You Mow the Lawn (1994)- James Marsden as Tyler Cochran
What a stupid sounding movie! Definitely check this link out but the picture is small so look close at the emo teenager, that’s him. 🙂

Amistad (1997)- Anna Paquin as Queen Isabella II
I think it’s funny how she still looks exactly the same.

Thunderpants (2002)- Rupert Grint as Alan A. Allen and rumored Keira Knightley as a music school student

Pocahontas (1997)- Christian Bale as Thomas
He plays such a happy guy in this movie but he’s so emo now!

The Adventures of Tom Thumb & Thumbelina
(2002)- Elijah Wood as Tom Thumb
It amazes me how Elijah can be so creepy in Sin City and so happy in LOTR.
