Adel - Not many South Georgia college students can say Johnny Depp, Keira Knightly, and Orlando Bloom are their co-workers.  That is, unless you're Hunt Baker.

Baker was selected to play a British militia man in "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" and the third movie, set to hit theaters next year.

He recently returned to his home in Adel after spending two and a half months in the Bahamas filming this swashbuckling sequel.  "We did spend the first two weeks training to be British militia soldiers. We learned how to handle a fire lock and musket from the 17th century and we pretty much became formally trained to be East India Trading Company militiamen," Baker said.

Baker has taken time off of school at Valdosta State University and will be moving to Los Angeles.  He will spend another two months in the Caribbean this winter to wrap up shooting the third Pirates movie.
