Russell Brand and Jonah Hill have been promoting the hell out of Get Him to the Greek, with a great appearance at the MTV Movie Awards and a red carpet premiere in Sydney last week. In the film, Russell reprises his role as Aldous Snow—the crass, morally loose lothario rocker from Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Meanwhile, Jonah plays Aaron Green, a record company intern assigned to pick up Aldous in London and escort him to a special show in LA at the Greek Theater. You can guess what happens next—Aldous teaches Aaron how to party like a rockstar.
While it shares the same actors and director (and producer Judd Apatow) as Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Greek is not a sequel. Though Russell reprises his role, Jonah isn't playing his same Hawaiian waiter character from the first film and the movie looks more like The Hangover than a love story. Sean Diddy Combs plays a record exec and our own Rose Byrne shows us her raunchy side as Russell’s rocker chick girlfriend. Check out the trailer and let me know—will you see it or skip it?
