Say whatever you want about his skills as a pirate, but Captain Jack sure knows how to pick his lady pals.
Academy Award winning actress Judi Dench is set to appear in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the fourth installment in the Walt Disney Company's high seas adventure franchise. The news comes courtesy of The Daily Mail, complete with the best headline of the day -- seriously, I don't think it gets much better than "Johnny Depp to shiver Judi Dench's timbers in new Pirates of the Caribbean movie," do you? -- as Dench is reportedly set for a brief cameo in the Pirates sequel.
Dench reportedly agreed to film the cameo due to her past working relationship with director Rob Marshall on Nine, in addition to her impending ten year anniversary of working with Johnny Depp on Chocolat. Her role amounts to a minute or two of screen time at most, as she's set to play a noble lady who finds herself simultaneously ravaged and robbed by Jack Sparrow.
