Watch Crossbones TV Trailer - See John Malkovich as a Weirdo Blackbeard
This looks all the mental

Take the writer of Luther, the legend of Blackbeard and a star like John Malkovich and you've got one of the strangest looking TV debuts we've seen in awhile.

Crossbones is an entirely fictional account of the latter years in the life ofEdward Teach. Otherwise known as a pirate. Otherwise called Blackbeard and feared all across the Seven Seas. In this version of the story, he's languishing in the Bahamas and lusting after clocks when a young doctor ends up in his custody. But none of this is quite what it seems.

Check out the trailer.

Looks nutty right? Why is Richard Coyle trying to assassinate this guy? And what treasure are they looking for? Personally, I don't really care but I will be tuning in to watch Malkovich's captivating weirdness.

Where's his black beard though...

Crossbones premieres on the 30th of May on NBC.
