Russell Brand Interview: HOP The Movie
What a wild ride introducing Russell Brand to a new brand of media - Mom Bloggers! During the HOP press junket, we sat down to meet Russell and I got to sit next to him! Opening this Friday, HOP is the new live action animated film in which Russell voices the lead character, E.B. - that's right, the Easter Bunny!
Russell Brand: Mommy bloggers sounds like a nice saying. What if people who say it become so incorporated into language, so people would just use it normally? "There's a Mommy blogger outside! For heaven's sake, help her!"
When shooting HOP, Russell had to voice his character alone in a sound booth without interacting with any humans...
Question: So, you weren't with any of your co-stars? How was that, acting alone?
Russell Brand: Lonely. What we should have had is we should have packed that booth with Mommy bloggers to give me something to do and an audience to play to. Tim Hill, the director, he's nice and he was encouraging to me. They stuck me in a booth and just left me in there. I was lonely. There were some carrots. They said it would help with the character. I don't like carrots. I could see better, though.
