Captain Jack Sparrow's timbers could really be shivering this time around.
Former Deadwood star Ian McShane is in talks to join Pirates of the Caribbean: On Strange Tides, the fourth film in the billion-dollar Disney franchise, as the nefarious Blackbeard, an actual British pirate who plundered aplenty back in the 1700s.
McShane most recently played a mighty family patriarch in the short-lived NBC drama Kings, and it would be nice to see him twirling his 'stache once again.
The storyline involves a hunt for the legendary Fountain of Youth—something Depp could probably tell those pirates a thing or two about.
