Geoffrey Rush (Barbossa)
Are you excited for the World Premiere?
Geoffrey Rush: I read stuff today online, or maybe it was in the paper, I saw the construction of the screen and everything, I don’t know, six stories high and ten stories wide. They planned this I think before we even started shooting the film. That’s a lot of pressure! (laughs)
How does this latest installment stack up to the rest of the franchise?
GR: Jerry Bruckheimer’s got a good, you know, traditional but exciting sense of events. And when you’re four films in, and we know we’ve got a good one, I saw it at the El Capitan four or five nights ago. And it just plays…it’s fantastic.
Ian McShane (Blackbeard)
How was it working on your first Pirates film?
Ian McShane: With Johnny and Geoffrey and Penelope it was terrific. We had a great time. Six months in Hawaii, LA, London, and I hear the film’s terrific. So we’ll see.
Keith Richards (Captain Teague)
You’re back as a pirate once more! Did you have a good time reprising the role?
Keith Richards: It’s fun, I almost feel like an old hand. It’s different for me. To me it’s a kind of bit of fun and a laugh, and I love working with Johnny. It’s about as cool as it gets.
