    The pirate Blackbeard was one bad, scary dude. But when played by the purring John Malkovich on NBC's Crossbones, premiering May 30, he's badder, scarier and a whole lot more...thoughtful.
    "Malkovich's version is not the Blackbeard of popular imagination," exec producer Neil Cross says. "He's got an undercurrent of intellectual perversity — and more in common with Colonel Kurtz, Isaac Newton and James Bond's Blofeld."
    Blackbeard also has an assassin in his midst, ship's doctor Tom Lowe. Here, Blackbeard tortures a sailor he thinks is a spy. Imagine what's to come for Tom.
