It’s called Get Him to the Greek and will also star Jonah Hill (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Superbad). Brand will be playing an out-of-control rock star who needs to be escorted to a show at the Greek Theater in L.A. More good news – Nicholas Stoller, who directed Sarah Marshall will also be involved. Throw in Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, and maybe even a cameo by Seth Rogen and I’ll be happy.
ComingSoon.net has an exclusive interview with Forgetting Sarah Marshall director Nicholas Stoller. He talks about casting Mila Kunis as the love interest, collaborating with Jason Segel, and filming in Hawaii. My favorite question in the interview, though, is about Jason Segel’s musical talent. Stoller says,
Oh, yeah. That Dracula musical, he wrote a version of that song that he plays at the bar when he was 20, and he legitimately wanted to do a serious puppet Dracula musical, and didn’t understand why it was funny. (laughs) That was an actual goal of his.
