Hi readers! this is my entry for the lovely Realweegiemidget’s first blogathon (congrats on the success!) about her favorite program Dallas (1978)
I have never seen or heard of this program but wanted to participate in the blogathon because its host is quite wonderful!
So I decided to write up about Ian McShane’s (Don Lockwood) role in the Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011).
McShane plays the role of Blackbeard a new rival of Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp). Together with Blackbeard’s daughter Angelica (Penelope Cruz) and Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), they embark on finding the Fountain of Youth.
I just really love all of the Pirates movies- (CAN’T WAIT FOR #5 – did you hear Orlando Bloom is back as Will Turner?????) and McShane is great as Blackbeard- even though he probably will not continue the role (spoiler- as his character dies at the end!) I just adored the humor as well as mystique he brought to his portrayal of such a legendary figure. AND OF COURSE who wouldn’t want to have the cool powers of controlling The Queen Anne’s Revenge with just a swish of your sword- seriously cool!
Take a look at McShane’s super cool entrance!
I am just glad Disney decided to do this movie, as it is a bit of a difference from the other three- but it’s still great, for the performances of the new characters are just splendid.
I can’t speak for myself, as I have never seen Dallas, but I’m sure seeing Ian McShane as a ruthless pirate must be a very different departure from his character of Don Lockwood. However, I must say he plays an awesome pirate! !!!
