Bill Nighy stars again as Davy Jones in part III of th Pirates trilogy with Johnny Depp, Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom.

 

Bill Nighy about playing Davy Jones

“A lot of grog, a lot of sex — it’s a great daydream,” says Bill Nighy, who plays Davy Jones in the “Pirates” movies. “Of course, nobody wants to really live the life of the pirate, but the idea of a pirate might take you out of the cubicle for a while.”

Bill about the success of the Pirates movies:
” I know it sounds cheesy but it’s something to do with big heartedness and good spiritedness and you just feel a bit better when you leave the cinema than you did when you went in.”

“It’s intense, it’s wild, it’s crazy, it’s slightly overwhelming. I mean these people have been here for about 24 hours, half of them are dressed as pirates – to be in something that is this beloved it’s a gas.”

The critics:

Depp and the gang turned in credible performances, but besides Richards, Nighy nearly stole the show. Buried under CGI tentacles, Nighy still managed to give depth to his character. (thedesertsun)

If there’s an actor who provides At World’s End with a shot of humanity, it’s Bill Nighy. He uses his fiery theatrical rhythms to give Davy Jones a wonderful seething fervor, and I wish the film had played up his poison-love backstory. (ew.com)

Geoffrey Rush, as the sequel hinted, is back in top form as Capt. Barbossa and he, in tandem with the tentacled Bill Nighy, make the action-less scenes watchable. There’s a tender, quiet moment between Nighy’s Davy Jones and the Caribbean mystic Tia Dalma (Naomie Harris) that nearly makes you forget the whole thing is busting at the seams. If it weren’t for Nighy, Rush and the handful of British character actors, this ship would have surely sunk. (dailytrojan.com)
