Brand: Bad boy character like me
Russell Brand has joked that Get Him To The Greek movie makers could have saved themselves a bundle of cash by just giving him a camcorder for two years.
The comedian said his movie character of talented bad boy rocker Aldous Snow mirrored his own life.
Russell, whose career in the US has soared following the "Sachsgate" scandal, was being interviewed on LBC 97.3 by James O'Brien.
Agreeing with O'Brien that there was much of himself in the character, the star said: "A clear corollary has been established and exploited."
Russell - who is engaged to singer Katy Perry - joked: "In a way, what they could have done is just given me a camcorder for a couple of years and saved themselves an awful lot of money."
