Five Favorite Films with Russell Brand
With roles in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," the recently Certified Fresh "Get Him to The Greek," and the upcoming "Despicable Me," Russell Brand has made his mark in recent big screen comedies. And well, it certainly doesn't hurt to be romantically linked to pop superstar Katy Perry, one of People's Most Beautiful for 2010. With both "Greek" and "Despicable" in theaters this Summer, Brand's brand (too easy?) of comedy will continue its raucous romp through your local cineplex this year.
With a very diverse list of films and a Five Favorites first, Brand stopped by The Rotten Tomatoes Show on Current to share five of his favorite movies.

Critics Consensus: Get Him to the Greek Is Certified Fresh
This week at the movies, we've got rock 'n' roll ribaldry (Get Him to the Greek, starring Russell Brand and Jonah Hill); DNA disturbances (Splice, starring Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley); a canine caper (Marmaduke, starring Owen Wilson and William H. Macy); and espionage entanglements (Killers, starring Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher). What do the critics have to say? It might seem like fun to hang with your favorite rock star -- unless you actually have to do it. The critics say Get Him to the Greek takes this inspired premise and wrings plenty of terrific gags from it, making for a film that has such high energy that its lapses are easy to forgive.

Total Recall: Cinema's Greatest Party Animals
Even with Kristen Bell, Mila Kunis, a naked Jason Segel, and a room full of singing puppets starring, Russell Brand walked away with many of Forgetting Sarah Marshall's most memorable moments -- and his scene-stealing character, the drunken polyamorist rock star Aldous Snow, returns this week in Get Him to the Greek. This time, Snow's on the road with a record company intern (played by Jonah Hill) charged with keeping him on the straight and narrow -- a classic comedy setup that got us thinking about the many hard-living men and women who have entertained us with their movie antics. Naturally, we had to make a list, and you know what that means...it's time to get down with our favorite party animals (presented in alphabetical order) Total Recall style!
