Confirming a report that popped up over the weekend, comedian and “Arthur” star Russell Brand has confirmed he’s up for a role in the upcoming musical “Rock Of Ages” from New Line.
According to The Fan Carpet, Brand said yesterday during “Hop” premiere red carpet interviews that he will do it on the condition that it doesn’t interfere with him spending time with wife Katy Perry. “I have to make sure I see me wife enough, but if we can work out the schedule, then yeah, I want to do it” he claims.
Brand’s role is said to be that of nightclub owner Lonny, and Brand jokes “I’ve already got the hair. I am way ahead of them on that account.”
