Taika Waititi Hits 'RuPaul's Drag Race Down Under' Premiere After HBO Max Pirate Series Announcement

Taika Watiti dances around the blue carpet with Philma Box at the premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under held at the Sydney Opera House on Friday (April 30) in Sydney, Australia.

The 45-year-old actor and Thor: Love and Thunder director will be a guest judge on the upcoming season alongside two of the country’s famous sisters.

Taika also had some more exciting news about what’s ahead of him after wrapping up the Marvel movie – an HBO Max comedy series called Our Flag Means Death.

The series, according to Entertainment Weekly, is based on the true story of Stede Bonnet, an aristocrat who abandoned his pampered lifestyle to become a pirate.

Taika is set to play one of the most famous pirates of all in the show – Blackbeard.

“Our Blackbeard is a legend, a lover, a fighter, a tactical genius, a poetic soul, and quite possibly insane,” series creator and showrunner David Jenkins said in a statement. “Only one man could play this role, and that is the great Taika Waititi. We’re thrilled beyond measure he’s decided to don the beard.”

Rhys Darby will star as Stede, and Taika will also executive produce and direct the pilot episode.

“2020 has been incredibly hard for communities who depend on tourism. Obviously not everyone is able to travel at the moment but once it’s safe to do so let’s support our fellow Aussies by taking a holiday at home in @Australia,” Chris wrote along with a couple shirtless pics. “@visitlordhoweisland is one of the most sustainable destinations in the world with only a few hundred visitors allowed at any one time. This paradise is home to one of the most unique ecosystems in the world, but like many small communities, it relies on tourism. Thanks to @islandhouse.lhi for the hospitality 🤙🙏”
