London, Nov 4 (ANI): English comedian Russell Brand is in talks for a five-million-pound role in the next Pirates of The Caribbean movie, as Captain Jack Sparrows brother.

Captain Jack Sparrow is a character played by American actor Johnny Depp, and in the fourth instalment, the swashbuckling pirate will also have a younger brother, Jonathan.

If the deal goes through, Brand, 33, will automatically end up on the Hollywood A-list, and that too in less than a week after resigning from his Radio 2 show over the Andrew Sachs phone row involving him and Jonathan Ross.

There couldnt be a role more perfectly suited. Theres a lot of Jack Sparrow in his mannerisms and behaviour. Depps accent isnt a million miles away from Russells either, the Sun quoted a source as saying.

Russell joining the Sparrows alongside Johnny and Keith Richards as their dad will complete the ultimate on-screen pirate family, the source added. (ANI)
