     April 15, 2008

This is the third of Collider’s video interviews from the Hawaiian junket of “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.” Click here to watch the Bill Hader interview, or click here to watch the Kristen Bell interview.

Since this is the third of my video interviews from the Hawaiian junket of “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” I’m going to dispense with the long intro and get right to the reason you’re here – the video interview with Russell Brand.

While most of America doesn’t know who Russell is yet, after watching “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and observing Russell as he did video interview after video interview in Hawaii…the guy is going to be a superstar.

Not only is he very funny in the movie, but when there is nothing scripted for him to say…he shines brighter than almost anyone I’ve interviewed on the site.

Seriously. Watch the interview below. And while I always post whatwe talk about, the conversation is so all over the place…you’re actually going to have to watch it without knowing what we talk about.

And since I’m keeping the intro very brief, here’s the official synopsis for “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.” But if you don’t want to read it…all you need to know is… if you want to see a funny movie, go see it this weekend. It’s definitely better than most of the movies playing in theaters now.

Struggling musician Peter Bretter (Jason Segel, Knocked Up, How I Met Your Mother) has spent six years idolizing his girlfriend, television star Sarah Marshall (Kristen Bell, Veronica Mars). He’s the guy left holding her purse in paparazzi photos and accidentally omitted from acceptance award speeches. But his world is rocked when she dumps him and Peter finds himself alone. After an unsuccessful bout of womanizing and an on-the-job nervous breakdown, he sees that not having Sarah may just ruin his life.

To clear his head, Peter takes an impulsive trip to Oahu, where he is confronted by his worst nightmare: his ex and her tragically hip new British-rocker boyfriend, Aldous (Russell Brand), are sharing his hotel. But as he torments himself with the reality of Sarah’s new life, he finds relief in a flirtation with Rachel (Mila Kunis), a beautiful resort employee whose laid-back approach tempts him to rejoin the world. He also finds relief in several hundred embarrassing, fruity cocktails.

For anyone who has ever had their heart ripped out and cut into a billion pieces comes a hilarious, heartfelt look at relationships—featuring Paul Rudd, Jonah Hill, Bill Hader and Jack McBrayer. Part romantic comedy, part disaster film, Forgetting Sarah Marshall is the world’s first romantic disaster comedy.

And with that…watch the interview.
