Assassin's Creed's New Protagonist Sure Looks Like This Porn Star

At first glance, Edward Kenway — the protagonist of the upcoming Assassin's Creed IV game — looks like your typical leading dude. Stoic, beefy, masculine. Nothing special, right?

Those with more astute observation skills over at Reddit, like zinadello13, noticed that Kenway bears a striking resemblance to Capt Edward Reynolds from Pirates. As in the (in)famous porn from 2005, which features references to the more family-friendly Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Pirates is also the most expensive porn film ever made.

Here is Edward Reynolds, who is played by actor Evan Stone:

Kenway and Stone could practically be related!

Stone has also been featured in classics like Space Nuts, Batman XXX: A Porn Parody, A Mother's Love, and, naturally, Pirates II.

The resemblance is one thing, but the fact that Stone has also played a pirate, and in a porn film no less, makes it hilarious.

Under closer inspection, there is something kind of skeevy about Kenway's appearance, no?

So...is the lead character from Assassin's Creed 4 based on the lead character from Pirates, the best selling porno of all time? [zinadello13]

    gold, all of a sudden the wanking/glory hole glitch makes more sense

    Ok, now I get where theyre going with this. . .
    Ass-assins Creed.

    I think you're reaching. He looks like a generic pirate-esque character.

    I visit reddit too

    Are we really at the stage where an author can say "Same hair colour, same eye colour - these guys all look the same to me anyway" and get away with it?

    they model characters on real life people - they could fess up on who that was....

    Anybody who has seen that Pirates II movie also know that this guy is the real life version of Zapp Brannigan.

      now we play the waiting game for Futurama - A XXX parody

    He also does a dam good Kirk in This Ain't Star Trek XXX

    If it was a female game character who resembled a porn star, you'd be reading a ten page rant article on sexulisation of women in video games. This is why I openly hate feminists.

    How many feminists does it take to change a light-bulb? None, feminists can't change anything.

    He also looks like John Smith, from Pocohontas, and Prince Charming from Shrek. He's very much a generic, manly, blonde Caucasian guy. So boring... good thing the naval combat'll be fun.

    I dunno, Kenway reminds of Val Kilmer.
