    Jessica Brown-Findlay, James Frecheville & More To Star In Smiths Comedy 'Shoplifters Of The World'; Russell Brand Also Eyed For Role

    Ah, The Smiths. Who among us, at least those born after 1965 or so, can say they didn't have moments of adolescent angst, confusion and heartbreak soundtracked by the acerbic lyrics of Morrissey and the chiming guitar lines of Johnny Marr? And yet, their influence on film has never quite matched...

    Russell Brand Will Try To Scare Up Laughs In 'The Hauntrepreneur'

    2011 was supposed to be the year that Russell Brand conquered Hollywood, but instead it was the year he conquered the tabloids. “Arthur” hardly set the box-office on fire and saw Brand receive some pretty brutal reviews, while all “Hop” served to highlight was that he could a...

    Russell Brand Sets Up Late Night Show At FX, Sells Animated Show To Fox

    With the "Arthur" remake--set to be Russell Brand's big leading man coming out party in Hollywood--tanking pretty hard, it looks like the comedian is wisely turning to television in order to build his, uh, "brand" back up. And we have to say at least one of these ideas is a p...

    This isn't scientific or anything, and evidence still needs to gathered to turn this theory into a fact, but as Russell Brand's hair has become far less wild and as he's settled into a domestic life with his improbable wife Katy Perry, the man has gotten distinctly less funny. The witty,...

    Russell Brand Out, Ben Stiller In For 'Rentaghost'

    In Hollywood, you're only as good as your last movie, and with Russell Brand's first bonafide leading man vehicle "Arthur" opening at number three this spring and then fading fast from theaters, it seems some heat has fallen off Mr. Katy Perry. Meanwhile, Ben Stiller continues to be a moneymaker (at least when you stick him in mainstream fare). "Little Fockers," as wretched as it was, still made over $300 million worldwide. "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian"? More than $400 million around the globe. So it's no surprise that the folks behind the gestating movie version of the TV show "Rentaghost" would prefer one name much more t...

    'Rock Of Ages' Co-Star Julianne Hough A Contender For LeadThe screen career of Russell Brand has been an interesting thing to follow so far. The stand-up comedian broke out as a highlight of "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," and spun off the same character to a lesser, but still fair degree of success in...
