Pirates Of The Caribbean: CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL star Mackenzie Crook has been unemployed for months - and he's worried his career is stalling.

Crook rose to fame playing cult character GARETH KEENAN in hit British comedy The Office, and followed up the success by starring in last year's (03) swashbuckling Hollywood hit.

However, the 32-year-old has now found himself scrabbling about for work - and he's beginning to think no one wants him.

He says, "I haven't actually worked for months. There are supposed to be two sequels to the Pirates Of The Caribbean, but no one's seen any scripts. Maybe they don't want me to be involved."
