Russell Brand, What a Firework!, with HOP Giveaway

by Dawn

Russell Brand may be best known for his adult humor and over-the-top portrayal as Aldous Snow in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek, or even to some for his recent marriage to singer Katy Perry.

When the new family film HOP opens on April 1, audiences should be prepared to welcome him as a fantastic source of laughter for the younger set as well, as the voice of E.B. Not ready to take over for his father the Easter Bunny, E.B. flees to Hollywood to pursue his musical career, but when his path crosses with Fred O’Hare, played by James Marsden, both of their lives will be forever changed.

I’m thrilled to be able to say that I recently spent about twenty minutes in Russell Brand’s presence, and it was the funniest experience I believe I’ve ever had. From the moment Russell Brand joined the group of parenting bloggers assembled to participate in the roundtable interview, he commanded the conversation, in a hilarious way. While the discussion included lots of silly jokes about “Mummy Bloggers,” as Brand charmingly referred to us in his distinct accent, he also talked at length about the construct of the movie and its connections to cultural folklore and tradition. Honestly, I could have listened to him go on and on, hilariously or seriously, all day long.

How was it recording the voice for E.B., as opposed to filming a scene with other actors?

“Lonely. What we should have had is we should have packed that booth with Mummy Bloggers to give me something to do and an audience to play to. Tim Hill, the director, he’s nice and he was encouraging to me.

They stuck me in a booth and just left me in there. I was lonely. There were some carrots. They said it would help with the character. I don’t like carrots. I could see better, though.”

See what I mean? For the full effect, you have to try to hear him say it in your head, rapid-fire and full of laughter.

Did they film the live part of it first?

“No. They animate to your voice, so that’s good because you can change things and make decisions. They show a script and then I always change it because then I feel that I have more ownership of it and I feel that it’s funnier. As a comedian, you have to be funny. Otherwise, they will take your card.”

I have no fear that anyone will be taking his comedian card, ever. As talk turned more to the themes of the movie, the humor blended with more serious evaluation, as well.


What is it that makes E.B. memorable?

“Well, firstly, he looks crazy. He’s a rabbit and he doesn’t have any trousers or pants on. That’s peculiar. I remember that, myself.

And he has an evocative and playful spirit. The rabbit is a symbol in Native American mythology of the trickster often seen as the messenger between gods and man. Like Prometheus in ancient myth, who nicked fire from the gods, rabbits are almost mischievous. They’re always nicking our crops if you’re an agricultural type person.”

Since children’s literature plays a big role in both my family and professional lives, I appreciated the attention paid to that traditional role of the rabbit in lore and literature!

On the “realness” of the Easter Bunny:

“In your position as Mummy Bloggers, it’s important to keep up the idea that the Easter Bunny is real. I temporarily possessed him. Is that weird? Is that going to help? I possessed the Easter Bunny temporarily and was able to provide him with a voice. I have got a double identity where, by night, I transform into a rabbit, which is a difficult and painful process where my fangs grow and my fur grows and I contort like a werewolf.”

As you can imagine, the entire group was consumed by laughter while chatting with Russell Brand. Happily, I’m confident saying that adults and children alike will do the same when watching HOP, coming out in theaters tomorrow, April 1!

Great writeup! I saw Russell Brand on the Today Show this morning and he was a hoot & a half with Meredith in regards to the movie. I didn’t know too much about him ahead of time and found him absolutely darling. I can’t wait to see the movie with my family.

2 Dawn March 31, 2011 at 8:33 am

I’ll have to find the piece online, Janet- thanks for the heads up. Meredith Viera also appeared in GET HIM TO THE GREEK as herself trying to interview a very out-of-it Aldous Snow (RB). I think she appreciates his sense of humor!

I’ve never been a fan of Russell Brand…I’m just not into his style of humor, especially since my kids are old enough to start asking questions about what things mean! However, we are all looking forward to seeing this movie! Well, except for Shelby…but then again, at 3 weeks, how much can she legitimately see anyway?!!? hehe great write up, Dawn!

Reply

26 Jennifer March 31, 2011 at 10:02 am

Dawn that song is in my head ALL the time, because they play it all the time — in the mall, on televised sporting events etc etc, so I can’t believe that was not my go to thought on the title.

So I admire Dara’s catch on the reference.

28 Varda (SquashedMom) March 31, 2011 at 8:47 am

Well, you know we’re going to see this on opening weekend – because my son Jacob has been talking about this movie forever. He’s on the autism spectrum and his current obsession is… movies. I hear all day long about what movies are opening on what date and who stars in them (if it’s significant like Jack Black or Johnny Depp) and what they are rated.

And so we go see ALL of them (unless they are “NOT a real Kids movie, honey” – like Red Riding Hood) and at least twice (because that way Mommy gets a 2 hour break on a weekend of all-working-with-the-kid-all-the-time).

Glad it’s actually entertaining & delightful. I’m always MUCH happier when I don’t feel like pulling my eyeballs out for 2 hours.

I like Russel Brand as an actor,my husband and I can watch Forgetting Sara Marshall over and over. Granted most of his films are not child appropriate so it will be interesting to see how he does in HOP! I think it looks adorable and am thrilled that it is done by the same people who did Despicable Me. My kids and I look forward to seeing it.

Reply

33 Dawn March 31, 2011 at 2:46 pm

I thought the movie as a whole was very appropriate, and I tend to be quite sensitive about “adult humor” that gets put too often in kids’ movies, in my opinion. I’m planning on bringing my 3.5, almost 5, and 10 year old kids to see it.

I love Russell Brand and so look forward to seeing the movie Hop. There is something about his voice thats makes you stop and think. He’s so witty and funny. His voice is perfect for the rabbit. Every time the commercial comes on we all stop to watch. Don’t go alone, take others to share in the laughter….

Were the two male bloggers in your bunch offended to be called Mummy bloggers? Did they get their own category or was that glossed over?

Reply

50 Dawn March 31, 2011 at 2:56 pm

Thankfully, on all the “official” paperwork, our group was referred to as the Parenting Blogger group. The “Mommy blogger” label must have been used in prepping Russell Brand before joining us, because that’s what he came in saying, but he even corrected himself when he saw the men and included “Daddy Bloggers” at that time. Both Dan and Matt were both really laid-back guys who basically gave off a “no worries” kind of vibe in response to it, and the joke became all about his accent turning it into Mummy. And really, this guy is just so flirtatious he was playing to the Mummies in the group- as he said in an interview on the Today Show this morning, “I have a rapport with women.” :)
