Universal Pictures has been nice enough to put the first 5 minutes of “GET HIM TO THE GREEK” online. As a big fan of ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ I’m really looking forward to this one, Russell Brand aprises the role of Aldous Snow once again with Jonah Hill (whos playing a totally different character in this one). I laughed out loud a few times watching the 5minute intro, I had no idea Rose Byrne was even in it but her character looks just as hilarious as Russell’s.
GET HIM TO THE GREEK hits Australian Cinemas on the 17th June and American Screens tomorrow.
Aaron Green (Hill) gets things done. The ambitious 24—year—old has been given a career—making assignment. His mission: Fly to London and escort a rock god to L.A.’s world famous Greek Theatre for the first—stop on a huge comeback tour. His record mogul boss, Sergio Roma (Sean Combs), gives him one warning: “The artist is the worst person on Earth. Turn your back on him at your own peril.” British rocker Aldous Snow (Brand) is a brilliant musician, but due to a bad break up and nose—diving career, has fallen off the wagon and is now a drunken disaster. Weary of “yes men” and scared he’s entered the “greatest hits” moment in his career, Snow’s in the midst of a nihilistic downward spiral. When he learns his true love, model/pop star Jackie Q (Rose Byrne), is in Los Angeles, Aldous makes it his quest to win her back…right before kick—starting his world domination. As the countdown to the concert begins, one innocent young man must navigate a minefield of London drug smuggles, New York City brawls and Vegas lap dances to deliver his charge safe and, sort of, sound… all while trying to remain faithful to his med student girlfriend (Elisabeth Moss). He may have to coax, lie to, enable and party with Aldous, but Aaron will get him to the Greek.
