(The Sun)   Russell Brand takes a bunch of homeless people out for breakfast. It's hard to tell if he dressed like them in mockery or solidarity   (thesun.co.uk) divider line 17

Now I'll be the first person to say I don't like Russell Brand's acting, personality, or face, but I can't say anything bad about this. This ranks on par with the Beiber article from the other day.

Agreed, attractivefungus. Except I guess I don't mind his personality.

Hell I'll go one further and say I even like his acting. I challenge you to watch Get him to the Greek or Forgetting Sarah Marshall and not laugh.

Challenge Accepted, at least for Forgetting Sarah Marshall. It just didn't do anything for me.

My 7th grade teacher, after a trip to Africa, related the advice that "you don't treat a poor hungry man to a steak dinner". Because all you're doing is making all his future rice cakes taste especially shiatty.

It's not just about giving the homeless food, it's treating them like humans and actually looking them in the eye and talking to them that I am sure they appreciate.

If I had the cash and was so inclined, I'd do this just to hear the interesting stories those folks surely have. That's a much different lifestyle than I'm used to. Glob only knows the crazy things they've seen.

I actually like Russ.

I wouldn't neccesarily want to be best buds with him or have him over to the house. But as long as I can admire his shenanigans from afar I find him interesting.

His show on BBC radio was fantastic. Until he went off on Manuel's granddaughter with Wossy that is. And I thought even that was funny.

Couldn't agree more about the radio show, it is absolutely brilliant. It is the only thing I listen to on my commute to and from work. Cracks me up every day.

Agreed. I used to love Tuesdays, because that was the day Radio 2 (I think) put the recorded show online so I could listen in the States. Matt Morgan is/was a genius. The show was second only to Gervais/Merchant/Pilkington on XFM, which I only discovered years later (and still listen to on an endless loop at work).

I brought home a stray cat once that was so scrawny I couldn't believe it was alive. I gave it many tasty morsels, milk, a blanket to sleep on. It died the next day in horrible agony, apparently from the rich food I gave it that it had never had in its life.

So you should only give homeless people cat food. You don't want their intestines knotting up.

I thought cats were bovine lactose intolerant. Poor cat. Good job trying, though.

Cat food is much richer than dog food. You should assess which you will give the homeless to eat on a case-by-case basis.

I find the guy's 'celeb' persona to be nauseating and grating, but this is just the latest thing that lets me know he is a decent human being. The other things were, his discussion on drug rehab in a British government committee and a piece he wrote on the London Riots.
But damn it, it is hard to balance these things when the celeb profile is constantly blaring out of the TV and radio. I guess being a complete tool pays better than being a decent human.
