Production Weekly reports that Stephen Graham is in talks to join Rob Marshall’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. The British actor will play the role of Scram.
In related news, E! Online is reporting that Max Irons and Sam Claflin are in talks to play a new young lead:
Loyal fans of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise may not be too happy that Orlando Bloom won’t be returning for the fourth flick, but there are two guys out there who must be positively thrilled by his departure.
I hear two newcomers are at the top of the list to be Pirates’ new young leading heartthrob…
A very well-placed source tells me that Max Irons and Sam Claflin are both in the running to grab Bloom’s big sword and fill his swashbuckler shoes.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is scheduled to hit theaters on May 20, 2011.
