Russell Brand’s next comedic role is...as the Easter Bunny? Brand tells E! News about his role in the new film, Hop.
When told that kids were now going to think of him as the Easter Bunny, he replied, “Exactly! I'll make them do whatever I want. I'm gonna take their money. I'm going to mess with people's lives. I'm going to own Easter.
"And you know who the last person to do that was?...Jesus!...I can do anything. I'm the new Easter Bunny and I s--- Easter eggs!”
Brand is also starring in two upcoming films with Helen Mirren: the remake of Arthur and Shakespeare’s The Tempest. After working with Mirren, he called her "edgy...like a punk dutchess."
When asked about how he felt about doing Shakespeare, he said, “I've hoped to do Shakespeare because I've trained to do it. But you never know how these things are going to come about.”
