Is Judi Dench Filming A Cameo In Pirates 4?
Turns out Betty White isn't the only actress of a certain age who can make headlines by appearing in a movie or TV show for just a few minutes. Judi Dench-- who won an Oscar for about 12 minutes worth of acting in Shakespeare in Love, let's remember-- is apparently eyeing a cameo role in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, reuniting with both her Chocolat co-star Johnny Depp and Nine director Rob Marshall.
Before I get much further it's worth noting that this news comes from The Daily Mail, a publication known for some of the worst casting rumors out there, but the pieces pretty much fit together on this one. Dench's role is described as a noblewoman riding in a carriage that Jack Sparrow uses to escape from some kind of peril in the opening scene; while he "ravishes" her, he also manages to rob her over the course of the escape. Dench gets to show up for two days, neck with Johnny Depp, and spend the whole scene sitting in a carriage? Nice work if you can get it.
