Watch This: Russell Brand in the Get Him to the Greek Trailer
Right after Forgetting Sarah Marshall hit in 2008, Universal decided to make a spin-off featuring rock star Aldous Snow (played by Brit Russell Brand), the crazy idiot who is screwing Jason Segel's woman. This is that spin-off, titled Get Him to the Greek, about an assistant at P. Diddy's record label who has to fly to London and "get" Snow back for a performance in LA. Basically, they're selling it like The Hangover mixed with an annoying "sweaty little drunk idiot covered in puke" sidekick, played by Jonah Hill. To be entirely honest, I actually think this looks good. It's got some funny moments and I'm really looking forward to it.

A record company intern is hired to accompany out-of-control British rock star Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) to a concert at LA's Greek Theater. His only warning: Turn your back on him at your own peril.
Get Him to the Greek is both written and directed by comedy mastermind Nicholas Stoller, the filmmaker behind Forgetting Sarah Marshall previously and a screenwriter for Fun with Dick and Jane and Yes Man as well. Jason Segel is also credited for the creation of the character Aldous Snow. Universal is bringing Get Him to the Greek to theaters everywhere on June 4th this summer. So is this something you'll be seeing?
