Captain Jack Sparrow by Medicom
Johnny Depp - what an actor!! He certainly turned "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)" into a trilogy through his acting and the potrayal of his character, Captain Jack Sparrow. Never seen another pirate quite like him. His "Jack Sparrow" is certainly a one-of-a-kind character - can't imagine anyone else being able to fill the role coz he made the role his. Never heard of the term an "anti-hero" mentioned of a character before - there were just heroes and villians, no in-betweens, until now. Jack is the Pirate Lord of the Caribbean Sea and can be treacherous, surviving mostly by using wit and negotiation rather than weapons and force; although he will fight if necessary, he tries to flee most dangerous situations. The opening sequence where he arrives in Port Royal looking to commandeer a ship was simply brilliant. What a ride, what an adventure!
