Russell Brand: Booting up for ‘Pirates’ Sequel?

British comedian Russell Brand—who made last year’s MTV Music Video Awards such an entertaining spectacle—was sporting some sweet silver boots as he appeared on The Late Show With David Letterman yesterday to promote his new literary masterpiece, My Booky Wook.

But he might consider trading them in for something more suitable for the high seas.

Brand tells Access Hollywood that he might be appearing alongside Johnny Depp in the next installment of the hugely successful Pirates of the Caribbean movie series.

If he can carve the time out in his busy schedule. “There’s been some talk of doing a Pirates movie,” the intriguingly coiffed funnyman notes. “But, I’ve got eight other things to do [including Forgetting Sarah Marshall sequel] 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.”

Still, he’s not writing the possibility of becoming a swashbuckler off:  “[It’s] a  possibility, yes.” Another possible obstacle to his inclusion in the Pirates saga is his pet feline.

“Someone’s got to feed the cat,” Brand offers. “He won’t feed himself. I’ve tried encouraging it but he expects cat food to be issued to him on a daily basis.”

All the more reason for becoming a pirate. At least with a pe parrot, he’d know exactly when it was time to break out the crackers.
