Jack Davenport has an emergency back-up plan should his acting career falter.

The Pirates Of The Caribbean actor joked he might consider producing and working behind the scenes one day.

"Oh I'm sure as my career starts to plough into a brick wall I'll have to think about something like that, so we'll see how it goes," he laughed.

The actor, who's currently starring in Five's FlashForward, joined Tom Cruise and Nicolas Cage to see legendary producer Jerry Bruckheimer have his hand and feet cast in cement outside the famous Grauman's Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard.

Having worked with Jerry on the Pirates franchise, Jack explained the filmmaker was impressively relaxed in co-ordinating the blockbusters.

"When we did the first one, we'd filmed in LA for five months, then we flew to St Vincent and we had two private jumbo jets chartered to fly us," he explained. "I was in the hotel and Jerry was there with his wife having a leisurely breakfast. I wasn't working that day and said 'are you not nervous that you've brought 800 people to the middle of nowhere?' and he was like 'naaah you hire the best people and it'll be fine' - and that's kind of him in a nutshell."
