Russell Brand is a famous personality across the pond, now on America’s radar thanks to Forgetting Sarah Marshall. (Lindsay at Videogum finally found screengrabs of Jason Segel’s penis, you’re welcome.) At 32, Brand already has quite a Wiki: he kicked heroin with help from Hare Krishnas, publicly feuded with Bob Geldof, and was fired from MTV for coming to work dressed as Osama bin Laden on September 12, 2001. Also, he’s mates with Morrissey, who recently visited Brand’s BBC Radio where they talked about the Smiths, comedy, and politics. “When somebody becomes the President of the US, they age very quickly,” says Moz. “So could you imagine if John McCain becomes the president?” McCain is old, you guys. Listen here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5. It’s the second most British thing on YouTube this month.
After the jump, the music video for “We’ve Got To Do Something” by Infant Sorrow, Russell Brand’s fake band from Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
Coming soon: Another Apatow movie with Brand as a rock star.
