Reggie Lee (ÂThe Fast and The FuriousÂ) has landed a supporting lead in the third installment of DisneyÂs ÂPirates of the CaribbeanÂ directed by Gore Verbinski and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. Lee stars opposite Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley, and Chow Yun Fat as a villainous Pirate named Tai Huang. Lee filmed some initial scenes with Depp in April while both sequels were filming concurrently on St. Vincent in the Caribbean. He resumes filming in late August in Los Angeles and the Bahamas through 2006. ÂPirates of the Caribbean 3Â is due in theatres in 2007.
LeeÂs character is involved in several of the filmÂs stunt sequences for which he will undergo Âpirate trainingÂ in preparation. He looks forward to the physical demands of the role, which will be no problem for the avid athlete.
