Pirates of the Hoyay

Am I the only person who noticed that Johnny Depp drew on his two roles in Before Night Falls to create the character of Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean?

Johnny Depp as Lieutenant Victor + Johnny Depp as Bon Bon =

Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow

I can't be, as Melanie Haupt credits the "hoyay and gender-performance subversion" as her favorite part of the movie.

"Hoyay", by the way, was a new term to me. The Television Without Pity FAQ defines it:

HoYay: short for "Homoeroticism, Yay!," a celebration of textual and subtextual homoeroticism

That sounds like a pretty useful word. I need to figure out how to submit it to WordSpy.
