Thesp to play Jack Sparrow's sidekick, Scrum

Stephen Graham has come aboard “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” as a sidekick to Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow.

He’ll portray Scrum, a Machiavellian pirate in Disney’s fourth installment of the franchise in which Sparrow seeks out the fountain of youth. Penelope Cruz and Ian McShane are also starring in “Tides,” set for release May 20, 2011.
