That should be incredibly boring and stupid. Thanks, Hollywood

Is this a remake of that old Jeremy Piven show? Because... ummm... I kinda liked that show.

So, another "thing with Russell Brand in it" then?

Seriously, how can anyone stand this choade? Every time I see a commercial for anything with him in it I am filled with immediate hatred for the show or movie being advertised. Like even if the rest of the movie was good, his immense suckage would drag the rest down with him.

And he always looks dirty and smelly.

because she's put cupid's chokehold behind her?
(la la la la)

Russell Brand is not funny, please stop hiring him.

/Same goes for Dane Cook.

Like anything with entertainment, people have different tastes. Nearly everything I've seen him in, I have laughed at. I haven't tried his show because personally I fear being over-exposed to comedians, but I have laughed at nearly every character of his.

I liked the new Arthur as well. Was too young to have seen the old one before I watched it, so after seeing the new one I gave the old a try. I can see how fans of the old didn't like the new; I couldn't stand the old one. I didn't find it funny and thought it was incredibly depressing.

If you didn't try Forgetting Sarah Marshal, try it. All around funny and creative, and his character Aldous Snow is a satirical character.

Yeah, hilarious. Dude's gal leaves him for Brand, who has herpes. and he *still* wants her back.
It's a movie abotu everyone being a dick.
With puppet vampires, too.

Cupid was the god of eros, erotic love, and I just can't see Brand carrying this off. I say make him Bacchus and lit him drink PBR in an epic hipster fail.

I don't know why but I can't hate on Russell Brand. He's kind of like everything I hate about the younger generation but at the same time he takes nothing seriously.

This movie sounds like it will suck though.

Cupid, draw back your bow oh, and let your arrow flow straight to my lover's heart, oh straight to my lover's heart.

When Katy Perry roles her eyes, it produces a gentle breeze.
 
2012-08-03 12:42:12 PM  
Man, even the sound of Katy Perry's eyeballs is enough to get me to change the station.
 
2012-08-03 12:43:38 PM  
Oh Russell BRAND. Lol.

I used to listen to his Radio 2 show online and it was great -- he had a comedy partner and writer on the show named Matt Morgan who was at least as funny as he is. It seems like when he does something with Morgan, it's always funny and at a lower key. When he flies solo, he overdoes everything (kind of like how anything Ricky Gervais does with Stephen Merchant is great, and anything he does without him is painful).

I thought he was terrific in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and felt the Arthur remake was genuinely funny and good (without, of course, holding a candle to the original).

This is exactly what I imagined when I read the headline too. Great minds and all that...

John Mayer is banging Katy Perry now.

That son of a biatch..
 
2012-08-03 01:49:07 PM  
I would RATHER see Russell Crowe as Cupid. Cupid would be bad-ass.

I watched that movie. It was a good flick but I thought it failed miserably by not having the huge Hawaiian guy come around and beat the everloving dogcrap out of Brand before the movie ends.

He plays the annoying jackass role a wee bit too well for my taste. I know enough people on a star trip in real life, and having someone attempt to entertain me by doing that bit grates on me more than a mite. When this douchebag comes on, the channel gets changed

i am sure her record breaking string of number one hit songs helps her get thru that.

Russell Brand playing Cupid is like having Elton John picking out a wedding dress
 
2012-08-03 08:49:14 PM  
Isn't she too busy jiggling her sweater pets for John Mayer?
 
2012-08-03 10:29:44 PM  
Russel Brand is on my Hope To Never See in a Movie again list, along with Jonah Hill, Cillian Murphy and Seth Rogen.
Not sure who to put at the top, they suck quite equally.
 
2012-08-04 03:52:08 AM  
Have any of you actually sat through an entire episode of his show on FX? I toughed it out for about five minutes before I had to change the channel. It's a painful, cringe-worthy level of awful.
 
2012-08-04 04:20:46 PM  
Who the fark is John Mayer, anyway? I only know the name because he seems to date every rebound girl he can get his dick into.

seriously, who the fark is he?

//yeah, yeah, i know hipster dude. Google is my friend. I did not want to admit that I was that curious

Remember that obnoxious Your Body is a Wonderland song?

The sooner Russell Brand disappears from the face of the earth the better off humanity will be.
