A pirate’s life was not for him. Before his award-winning role on Succession, Brian Cox turned down a role in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise — because he didn’t want to work with Johnny Depp.The actor, 75, revealed in a passage from his upcoming memoir, Pulling a Rabbit Out of a Hat, that he was offered the part of the governor in the first Pirates film, a role that eventually went to Jonathan Pryce. “It would have been a money-spinner, but of all the parts in that film it was the most thankless, plus I would have ended up doing it for film after film and missed out on all the other nice things I’ve done,” Cox explained, via an excerpt in GQ.However, there was one more reason why Cox decided to pass on the franchise — namely, his would-be costar, Depp, 58. “Another thing with [Pirates of the Caribbean] is that it’s very much the ‘Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow’ show, and Depp, personable though I’m sure he is, is so overblown, so overrated,” he wrote.Depp played Captain Jack Sparrow in five films, beginning in 2003 with The Curse of the Black Pearl, and most recently, in 2017’s Dead Men Tell No Tales.

A prequel film based on the character has been in the works since 2018, and though the studio announced plans to recast the role with a younger actor, many fans have petitioned to have Depp return as Jack Sparrow in the future.The HBO star has never been one to hold back his thoughts about his fellow actors.

Net worth of richest tennis star is more than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo combined
tennis player has a net worth more than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo's combined, yet you've probably never even heard of him.Romanian Ion Tiriac, who hung up his racket in 1979, only made around £200,000 during his career.He won the French Open Doubles title in 1970 and reached the semi-final of Wimbledon that same year before fading into relative obscurity.Following his retirement from the game, the Romanian embarked on a coaching career and worked with the likes of compatriot Ilie Nastase and even a young Boris Becker.In the decades since, he's proved himself a savvy businessman and made a string of good investment decisions which saw him turn that cash into a fortune believed to be around £1.5 billion.In comparison, his wealth dwarves the combined net worth of Messi (£440 million) and Ronaldo (£368 million) who are two of the richest active sports stars on the planet.Towards the end of the Cold War, Tiriac took advantage of fading communism in his native Romania to become the first to open a privately-owned bank, and the Tiriac Bank has been a huge financial success.Under the company Tiriac Holdings Ltd, he has since branched out into retail, insurance and airline businesses and by 2007 had been named by Forbes as Romania's first billionaire.According to data compiled by Forbes, he's the third wealthiest man in sport, behind WWE owner Vince McMahon and NBA legend Michael Jordan.What's the first thing you'd buy if you had Ion Tiriac's fortune and why?
