Though much of the world in NBC’s “Crossbones” believes the pirate Blackbeard (John Malkovich) to be dead, that simply isn’t the case. It’ll be a rude awakening for those who fear the legendary figure, as the series follows a fictionalized version of his life.
In the clip above, which is exclusive to Zap2it, Tom Lowe is tasked with killing Blackbeard at any cost. Though he’s surprised to learn the pirate is actually alive, he considers it an honor to be the one to end him.
“Crossbones” premieres Friday, May 30, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
