With the buzzing speculation, the Sweet Tooth, Nonso Anozie may have bagged another promising role of Blackbeard in season two of One Piece live-action.
Nonso Anozie is an amazing actor born on 1978 November 17th in England.
He is known for playing various notable characters in famous shows like Game of Thrones, Dracula Zoo, and the Netflix series Sweet Tooth.
He also brought home a BAFTA nomination for his character portrayal in the series Sweet Tooth.
Many of his fans are speculating that he might appear in season 2 of the popular hit series One Piece live-action as Blackbeard.
Is Nonso Anozie Blackbeard Live Action?
Fans say he might appear as the character Blackbeard in the series.
Blackbeard, or Marshall D. Teach, is an important character in the manga and anime series One Piece.
He is now captain of the Blackbeard Pirates and one of the four emperors alongside Luffy, Shanks, and Buggy.
Not only is he cunning, but he also has strong powers in this series. He has the devil fruit power called the ‘Yami Yami no Mi’ (Dark-Dark Fruit).
It allows him to control the darkness and powers of other Devil Fruit users.
He got the powers by murdering another character called Thatch, a member of the Whitebeard Pirates.
He was later able to get another devil fruit power called the Gura Gura no Mi (Tremor-Tremor Fruit) by stealing it after killing one of the white-beard members.
All of these events make him a fairly dangerous and very negative opponent
