Darby plays Stebe Bonnet, a wealthy gentleman who takes up pirating as a sort of mid-life crisis. He will also star alongside Taika Waititi, who will eventually portray the notorious pirate Blackbeard. But who’s on Captain Stebe’s crew? Kristian Nairn, Nathan Foad, Samson Kayo, Vico Ortiz, Ewen Bremner, David Fane, Joel Fry, Guz Khan, and Matthew Maher portray his lovable band of misfits.
But it wouldn’t be an HBO comedy without some great cameos. Leslie Jones, Nat Faxon, Nick Kroll, Kristin Schaal, and Fred Armisen are all set to star in this one. Hoist the sails for some high-flying hilarity.
