Ben Peyton

  1. Orlando Bloom, Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl. 2002.   The first one…  Director Gore Verbinski decided that due to The Lord of the Rings franchise.  Bloom was more bankable than Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Jude Law, Ewan McGregor, Tobey Maguire, Ben Peyton (a fairly unknown UK TV actor, The Bill, etc)) and Christopher Masterson. A tough role as Johnny Depp was stealing everything but the rudder as his wondrous Captain Jack Sparrow, with mascara, gold teeth and a Keith Richards’ rock ‘n’ roll shuffle.
