Russell Brand Starts Filming Arthur Remake
Russell Brand has begun filming the remake of 1981 hit movie Arthur. The famous lothario, and soon to be Mr Katy Perry, has toned down his wild backcomb and shaved off his trademark beard to portray the drunken millionaire playboy Arthur Bach – a role that should come naturally to him.
The role of Arthur, originally portrayed by Dudley Moore, sees Brand act alongside Dame Helen Mirren. The pair were seen snuggling for some scenes and Brand later tweeted: “In Rolls-Royce with the Queen. Revolution delayed. Stamp licking suddenly erotic.”
In between making offensive phones calls to Spanish waiters, Brand has carved himself a respectable and increasingly flourishing career in Hollywood. He can now add Arthur to a growing filmography that also includes St. Trinian’s, Forgetting Sarah Marshalland Get Him to the Greek.
