"He's fabulous to work with": PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST co-star Bill Nighy talks about Johnny Depp

In a recent interview with MovieWeb, British actor Bill Nighy, who plays Davey Jones in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN’S CHEST, had nothing but praise for the upcoming film and its star, Johnny Depp. Asked how he felt about being asked to join the cast, Nighy replied, “Well, I was thrilled because just like everyone else in the world, I loved the first movie and I was very pleased to join. It’s slightly daunting to be one of the new guys [. . .]. But I was made extremely welcome by Johnny, Orlando (Bloom), Keira (Knightley), and Gore (Verbinski), and Jerry (Bruckheimer), and everybody. Once I got over the initial confusion of wearing my strange computer pajamas, I was very pleased.”

Of the man who plays Captain Jack Sparrow, Nighy says, “Johnny’s a brilliant man, and a wonderful man, as well as an exemplary co-worker. When I first arrived, we worked out a few scenes together; there were some small accidents and he’s extremely inventive, he never stops working. He’s fabulous to work with.”
