First Footage: Russell Brand Shows Off ‘Get Him to the Greek’


MTV has posted a brand new video from the set of the upcoming comedy Get Him to the Greek, which will see the return of Russell Brand as his out-of-control rock star alter-ego Aldous Snow, a role that he played in Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

This time around Brand has reunited with Sarah Marshall director Nicholas Stoller (who also wrote this film) and co-star Jonah Hill, who will play Aaron Greenberg, the assistant to the always zaney Mr. Snow. Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs will play a role far from his own real life existence, starring as Snow’s record company executive and Aaron’s angry boss. The premise of the film is that it will be a comedy ‘road movie’ in which Aaron is tasked with getting Aldous from a gig in London to another show at the famous Greek Theater in Los Angeles.

Have a look at the behind the scenes video below, courtesy of MTV. As well, please note that this would otherwise be non-news, if it weren’t for the fact that Russell Brand is hilarious. Also — is anyone else not feeling good about Jonah Hill’s look these days. As a fellow fat kid, I weep for him. Hopefully its for the role and not because of the rolls (get the pun, rolls as in bread, as in carbs). Anyway, here’s the video:

Get Him to the Greek is scheduled to hit theaters in April 2010.
