Although a few sources were originally hedging their bets on Megan Fox taking on the small part of a mermaid in the upcoming 'Pirates' sequel 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' the part has actually been given to the equally hot and saucy Australian model Gemma Ward (below). Although her acting credentials are limited it'll still be something to look forward to in the fourth installment of the Disney franchise.
Rob Marshall is helming the project and Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush return to once again play their respective characters.
Ward, who has appeared previously in the popular Australian movie 'The Black Balloon' also appeared as Dollface in the 2008 home-invasion thriller 'The Strangers'.
Penelope Cruz and Ian McShane join the fun which will arrive in theaters in 3-D (doesn't everything these days?) in 2012.
