Russell Brand to coach pee wee soccer for Warner Bros.

02.11.2010

The entertainment world seems to have anointed Russell Brand some sort of huge comedy icon, after one decently memorable turn in FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL. He’s reprised that role in GET HIM TO THE GREEK, hosted two MTV award shows and is set to star in the ARTHUR remake. Now Warner Bros. is giving him his own feature, and I don’t even think they’re making him cut his hair.

Brand will play a “David Beckham-like” soccer star/millionaire playboy who gets arrested in Texas and is sentenced to coach a local youth soccer team Hilarity is supposed to ensue. So it’s like MIGHTY DUCKS meets THE BIG GREEN meets, I don’t know, Captain Jack Sparrow? I suppose this could be funny in theory given some decent writers, but who knows.

What do you guys make of Brand? To me he barely even seems like an actor, as his real life personality and what I’ve seen of him on screen aren’t very distinguishable from each other. He’s like bizarro world Michael Cera, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw them paired up in a buddy-comedy eventually.

Extra Tidbit: And why yes, he IS banging Katy Perry.

Like Anomaly7 said below, his five minutes of fame will soon come to an end.

Christ, I hate Russell Brand!

Brand's five minutes of fame will soon come to an end. He's like the new Dane Cook.

I like the guy, but I don't know if "washed up adult coaching annoying little kids at a sport" is exactly what I want from him...

Not gonna lie, I'm mad jealous this douche gets to ride the Katy Perry train every night.

He was funny in FSM, though.

Easy guys....

Okay, so the story concept sounds pretty lame, and maybe Brand isn't necessarily right for the part.

BUT, Russell Brand grew up acting, he attended a drama school here in England. He THEN became a comedian, and his stand up had been extremely successful. I believe he has been type casted as playing himself now, which is unfortunate for him. Don't hate on him, the dude is engaged to Katy Perry - he is a winner.

As for his acting chops, I guess we will have to wait and see, because up

As for his acting chops, I guess we will have to wait and see, because up until now - we haven't seen him play anyone but himself. So let's all cheer up and give the lad a chance :)

What an unfunny cunt he is. Does he still do that one tiresome joke he knows, the one about pulling down his pants and showing his dinkle and ballbags?
