RUSSELL BRAND (Aldous Snow) brings the character Aldous Snow back to life after a brief nap, following the success of Forgetting Sarah Marshall. The film, which was written by and starred Jason Segel, grossed more than $100 million at the worldwide box office. The year 2008 also saw Brand star in the Disney film Bedtime Stories, which also featured Adam Sandler and Keri Russell. It was in September 2008 that Brand cemented his fame in the U.S., when he hosted the MTV Video Music Awards (VMA).

The year 2009 saw the U.S. release of Brand's writing debut, "My Booky Wook: A Memoir of Sex, Drugs and Stand-Up.” The autobiography, already a huge success in the United Kingdom, went on to stay on The New York Times' best-seller list for five weeks in a row. Continuing his stand-up tour in the U.S., Brand's third live DVD was released after originally airing on Comedy Central. The year 2009 ended on an even brighter note for Brand, when he assumed the role as host of the MTV Video Music Awards for the second year in a row and garnered the biggest VMA audience since 2004, with nearly nine million viewers.

This summer, Brand will lend his voice to the role of Dr. Nefario in Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment's 3-D CGI feature Despicable Me. Set for release on July 9, the film will also include the vocal talents of Steve Carell and Jason Segel. This summer, Brand starts production on the remake of Arthur, in which he takes on the title role for Warner Bros. In addition, he is due to take on the voice of the Easter Bunny in the Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment live-action, CGI-animated hybrid comedy Hop, opposite James Marsden.

In addition to acting, Brand continues to work on his second book.
