There's a rumor going around that the part of Captain Jack Sparrow's brother in Pirates of the Caribbean 4 will not go to Russell Brand, as previously was rumored. Russell Brand's slamming of the Jonas Brothers' chastity is the tip of the iceberg as to the ways he has offended people in recent months and Disney is touchy about their brand, er, child actors. I think Russell would be perfect as Johnny Depp's brother, but this latest rumor has me excited. If Orlando Bloom is out, who's your heart throb in the movie then, to bring in all those teen girls (and their moms)? Robert Pattinson! My how his movie stardom has changed things, eh? So far this is all rumor. I'll believe it when it's printed on Nikki Finke's blog or Variety.
