A fresh face has been added to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, which is now over a decade old believe it or not. A couple of weeks ago, we got word that a number of young actors were in the running to join Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales in the coveted new role of Henry, a British soldier. The shortlist included The Fault in Our Stars standout Ansel Elgort, The Giver star Brenton Thwaites and others, but now it appears that the victor has been selected: Thwaites. The 25-year-old Australian actor had two high-profile roles this year with Maleficent and the dystopian adaptation The Giver, in addition to the sci-fi indie The Signal, and now he’s in talks to join one of the most popular franchises around. More after the jump.
