The Arthur actor filmed a kissing clip with Perry for the comedy, just before they started dating in September 2009.

The pair became engaged before the movie was released, and Perry's cameo was axed for fear it would be "too cheesy" for viewers.

However Brand, who is now married to the I Kissed a Girl hit-maker, is hopeful he will one day get to appear on screen with the singer.

He tells Britain's Daily Star, "I'd love to star in a movie with my bea...

The former drug addict and reformed Lothario catapulted into the spotlight starring in movies including Get Him to the Greek, and last year he wed pop superstar Perry.

Comedian Russell Brand has Adam Sandler to thank for his blossoming Hollywood career - because the movie star was the first to suggest the Brit abandon his TV job and try out as an actor.

The "Get Him to the Greek" star previously worked as a presenter for MTV UK and it was only after a risque interview with Sandler that Brand began contemplating moving to the U.S.

Rod Stewart has reignited his war of words with Russell Brand - he's once again cast doubt on the British funnyman's sexual prowess.

The Maggie May hit-maker famously clashed with Brand at an awards ceremony in London in 2006, when he forced the comic to back-track over boasts he bedded the rocker's daughter, Kimberly. Stewart told Brand it was wrong to brag about his womanizing, and goaded the Get Him to the Greek star to admit he "never touched" Kimberly.

Now, Stewart has taken another swipe at the self-proclaimed Lothario's sex boasts - insisting Brand's claim to have slept with 90 w...

Katy Perry's skirt got caught in the wind, revealing a little tush as she was getting into her car on Thursday. Previously, the pop star and her fiance Russell Brand ate together at Dusty's Cafe in Silverlake, Calif.

Her easily stuck-in-your-head hit "California Gurls" was recently named the most popular song of the summer by Billboard. The music charting service says the ditty about girls donning Daisy Dukes with bikinis on top pretty much ruled the charts during all of June and July.

Get Him To The Greek
Russell Brand and Jonah Hill showed up to the "Get Him to the Greek" U.K. photocall yesterday, and we wonder if Katy Perry gets jealous when her fiance hangs out with bikini-clad models?

Katy recently banned all heterosexual men from the set of her "California Gurls" video because she didn't want them to see her naked. She told, "You weren't allowed (on the set) unless you were a girl or you're gay; I think that's probably like the standard for all girlfriends." Yet Russell gets to hang out with nearly naked women...hmmm...double standard?

Funnyman Jonah Hill wasn't laughing when he overheard medics talking about amputating his arm when a teenage joyride left him with a shattered limb.

The "Get Him to the Greek" star still bears the scar of the near-fatal accident that reminds him of his wild youth, when he "was not a good kid."

Hill tells Rolling Stone magazine he started behaving badly because he was convinced his mom was going to lose her cancer battle - and his life almost ended one night.

Summer 2010 Is Disappointing For Film Lovers

The Karate Kid
It looks like the summer of 2010 will be one moviegoers will soon want to forget. Many studios and filmmakers are already scratching their heads wondering why this summer (barely halfway over) is producing rather disappointing numbers at the box office.

Iron Man 2 and Shrek Forever After have made $291 million and $166 million respectively and are the only big-budget films that have come out during this crucial season to break even with their production budgets. Audiences’ clear love of Robert Downey Jr.’s cool superhero Tony Stark and the comedic storytelling-style have made this franchis...

Katy Perry was full of sex appeal at last night's MTV Movie Awards. She blew away other red carpet stars in two sensuous dresses. First, she sparkled in a super short silver and nude mini dress. We don't know where the dress starts and the skin stops!

She also wore a gray and green skintight gown that revealed quite a bit of her voluptuous figure. Oh, and did we mention she donned a blue wig? (And looked totally hot with it -ed.)

The pop star recently "threatened" to get pregnant in order to slow down her work schedule. She is struggling to cope with her hectic work life and insists sh...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'The A-Team,' 'The Karate Kid,' & More

6/7/2010 9:18am EDT
Karate Kid
Last week’s “Get Him to the Greek” turned out to be much funnier than I expected it would be. Jonah Hill plays a naïve record company intern tasked with watching the wild rock star Aldous Snow, portrayed by Russell Brand. It’s clear right from the beginning that Hill’s character is unable to fathom the mess he has gotten into taking care of Snow, and he quickly gives in to Snow’s party lifestyle.

Most of the film’s humor is based in the awkward interactions between Hill’s Aaron and Brand’s Aldous, with typical lowbrow laughs. However this formula just seems to fit very well for the mov...

Lately I’ve been quite busy seeing movies. I saw three of the films that came out last week and I already caught one that opens this week. My review of the one premiering this week will be in next week’s column.

I subjected myself to “Sex and the City 2” last Monday which I appreciated it about as much as any man probably could: not very much. It was not a terrible film by any means though. Fans of the show should have a good time. My Grade: B-

Tuesday I saw “Prince of Persia” which I describe as a funnier version of “Clash of the Titans” since the dialogue is more entertaining. As ...

Funnyman Russell Brand fears rock 'n' roll has lost its edge because today's top stars are too conscientious.

The Brit, who plays wild rocker Aldous Snow in upcoming "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" spinoff "Get Him to the Greek," thinks today's stars are too soft and caring and he craves a return to an era when all they did was rocked.

He explains, "Bands are more preppy nowadays. That's why I think of Aldous Snow as a man out of time. He would've fit in better in the '60s or '70s. Rock stars didn't have to care back then. Early rock 'n' roll was about hedonism and escape.
