… it’s great to know Mr. Gillette used his spare time for studies.

PotC then and now, plus a Damian O’Hare lookalike

Screencrush wants you to see the “Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl” cast then and now, which is totally not the same as “where are they now”. I’m very pleased to see that Lt. Gillette is listed as well (after Ragetti and before Mr. Gibbs!)

In completely unrelated news, Renee from Kentucky mailed:

“Damian is on awkwardfamilyphotos and he sparkles!”

Phew. No, it’s not him.

Any other doppelgängers you know of? Keep me posted.

A SELECTION OF CHOCOLATE

Real chocolate. Not the tasteless factory stuff – chocolate-chocolate. Milk, dark, white, nuts, orange – your choice.

and answer the following question:

“What mistake has happened regarding Lieutenant Gillette in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides sticker book?”

A) They confused him with Lieutenant Groves

B) They misspelled his name

C) They called him a pirate

It’s never been easier than this year – and in case you’re still in doubt: check here.

Much care and consideration has gone into the production of this merchandise.

The following merchandise for PotC: OST has landed on my desk. It’s a stickerbook:

It came with the information that “Officer Gilette” (sic) had also made it into the book. And indeed:

Great news! Lt. Gillette on the lid would give my laptop at work a little more credibility than the “I can haz brainz?” zombie sticker that it’s currently sporting, though one could argue that it’s perfectly fitting for our meetings.

Obviously, much care and consideration has gone into the production of this merchandise:

I guess the stickerbook was put together by the same professionals responsible for this masterpiece:

Anyway. If you’d like to buy this spectacular piece of movie memorabilia, you can do so here. Or you’ll just wait for our traditional Yuletide Contest and hope that you’ll win this beauty, among other lovely things.

How Gillette almost escaped to Mexico…

Posted in interviews, movies, potc 4 with tags , , , , , , , on 17 October, 2011 by ambarussa

Greg Ellis, aka Lt. Groves in the PotC movies, has given an interview to Jim Hill, which is now available online. He talks about his work on “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” with Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, Kevin McNally and Damian O’Hare, and ponders the possibility of Groves’ return in PotC 5 (working title: “Pirates of the Caribbean: Zombies in Uniform”). You can find the interview here:

GREG ELLIS WONDERS IF HIS “PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN” CHARACTER WILL BE RETURNING FOR THE FIFTH FILM IN THIS SERIES

Here’s a small excerpt from the interview:

“And at one point, there was a semi-serious discussion among the actors that we should just keep going. Just sail on in to Mexico and then see how the locals would react as all these pirates and Royal Naval Officers came up on shore.”

I can’t help but feel that an escape of Gillette and Groves to Mexico would have made for a far better movie.

49 screencaps of Damian O’Hare as Lt. Gillette in “Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides”. As Gillette spends most of his limited time in the company of Groves, fans of Greg Ellis will hopefully also find a couple of caps to like.

As always, please feel free to use the caps, credit isn’t necessary, just please don’t hotlink. Cheers!
