Russell Brand Gives Question Mark to 'Pirates of the Caribbean 4' Casting Rumor

Russell Brand has finally given his response to the rumor of him to portray Jack Sparrow's brother in "Pirates Of The Caribbean 4 (The Fountain Of Youth)". To Billy Bush of Access Hollywood and of "The Billy Bush Show", the "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" actor confessed that talks of the matter have indeed been done, but he's not sure if he has the time.

"There's been some talk of doing a 'Pirates' movie," Russell confessed. "But, I've got eight other things to do [including] 'Get Him to the Greek' with Judd Apatow...So I don't know if there'll be time to be a pirate, I've got enough of that in me private life." In spite of his 'not-sure' remark, the 33-year-old still pointed out that there is a chance that he may end up starring in the movie, saying "A possibility, yes. I think it's a possibility."

Though detailed information about "Pirates 4" has remained tightly under wraps, it is said that the new project will be focusing solely on Johnny Depp's Jack Sparrow as it follows the eccentric pirate in his quest to find the Fountain of Youth. Leaving out Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann in this new adventure, he is forced to team up with Captain Barbossa in order to "defeat some supernatural terror".

Meanwhile, Russell Brand is famous for his hosting role on "Big Brother" spin-off, "Big Brother's Big Mouth". He has appeared in a number of big screen movies, including "Forgetting Sarah Marshall", "St. Trinian's" and "Bedtime Stories". He will reprise his "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" role, Aldous Snow, in "Get Him to the Greek".
