as he calls out several celebs who’ve rubbed him the wrong way, including “Pirates of the Caribbean” star, Johnny Depp.“It would have been a money-spinner, but of all the parts in that film it was the most thankless,” Cox, 75, wrote of turning down the part of the Governor in the “Pirates” franchise, which eventually went to Jonathan Pryce. “Plus, I would have ended up doing it for film after film and missed out on all the other nice things I’ve done.”
