Today Popsugar posted this sneak peak of Ian McShane from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, where he will be playing the infamous pirate, Blackbeard.

Personally, since Deadwood’s gone off the air, I’ve watched any evil McShane role I can get my hands on. Recently, I slogged through all of the Starz miniseries, The Pillars of the Earth, for any semblance of the glower power McShane dished out as Al Swearegen. As a conniving priest, McShane was fine, but face-hairless and overall lacking in the punchy obscenities and burly rage that made him so much fun to watch on Deadwood. Anytime he said “sheriff” I was reminded of happier – more western times. So, I am personally stoked to see him with an intense beard-and-mustache combo next to Jack Sparrow. I don’t care about the premise or the director or how little sense the last film made; this snapshot guarantees my attendance opening weekend.
