DESPICABLE ME

RUSSELL BRAND (Dr. Nefario) recently brought Forgetting Sarah Marshall character Aldous Snow back to life in Universal Pictures' comedy Get Him to the Greek. Forgetting Sarah Marshall, 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.

Brand recently started production on the remake of Arthur, in which he takes on the role of the title character for Warner Bros. In addition, he is due to take on the voice of the Easter Bunny in the Universal Pictures/Illumination Entertainment liveaction/ CGI-animated hybrid comedy Hop, opposite James Marsden.

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