Johnny Depp almost lost the role of Jack Sparrow to this actor: He holds the world record and is also the “original” of the captain!

This is the male actor representing the Jack Sparrow role model played by Johnny Depp.

As the “chameleon” of the Hollywood film industry, Johnny Depp has many familiar roles, leaving many impressions on the audience. But certainly the image of mischievous and humorous Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean is the most classic, wonderful and memorable. However, in 2003, this role almost did not go to Johnny Depp .

In an interview with Fox News, Stuart Beattie – screenwriter of the first Pirates of the Caribbean part revealed an extremely interesting fact about Jack Sparrow. Beattie said when he wrote about this role, he always had an image of a person in mind. That is actor Hugh Jackman.

Hugh Jackman was the first choice for the role of Jack Sparrow

Beattie was very passionate about the musicals that Hugh Jackman participated in and felt that this man was very theatrical and talented. In addition, the Jackman family name is also the inspiration for creating the classic captain character named Jack Sparrow that everyone is familiar with today.

That’s right, Hugh Jackman was the first choice for the role of Captain Jack Sparrow, not actor Johnny Depp. However, according to CBR analysis, perhaps because Hugh Jackman was not a famous name at that time, Disney seemed not to want him to transform into the central character of the Pirates of the Caribbean series .

Young Hugh Jackman

After a while looking through a series of famous names, in the end, Johnny Depp was the one chosen. Up to the last film, Johnny Depp has played Jack Sparrow for 14 years, leaving a deep affection in the hearts of millions of viewers. Johnny Depp himself also cherishes this role very much, often transforming into a captain to meet children and pediatric patients or making surprise appearances at Disneyland.

On the other hand, losing the role of Jack Sparrow did not leave a huge loss for Hugh Jackman. He himself also has an equally classic role on screen, that of the “mutant” Wolverine in the X-Men film series . Currently, Hugh Jackman holds the Guinness World Record for being the actor who has transformed into a Marvel character for the longest time on screen (17 years, 2000-2017). In addition, the star born in 1968 has proven his musical talent through the masterpiece The Greatest Showman .
