Check out this exclusive, behind-the-scenes clip from the upcoming Russell Brand yarn, Get Him to the Greek, which hits theatres on June 4. The movie isn't even out yet, but based on the clips I’ve seen from it, it's going to be one of those pee-your-pants-because-you-laugh-so-hard movies! This nearly three-minute clip, viewable here, shows how the filmmakers successfully went to great lengths to create an authentic rock concert at The Greek with Brand, who is engaged to pop star Katy Perry.
This clip really gives you a sense of how they put the concert production together and features interviews with Brand, writer/director Nicholas Stoller, the choreographers, the production assistant and even the lighting designer at the venue. It also points out the 1,400 extras who were corralled to be a part of the audience/crowd at the concert! Imagine having to be the person who handles the extras! Nevertheless, this fun clip certainly takes you places you've never gone before! Brand, cloaked in a white suit, also transforms into rock star Aldous Snow in the clip. It’s as though he has rock star in his DNA, which is crucial to the film's plot points! There's also a cool intro from Brand and co-stars Jonah Hill and P. Diddy, who introduces himself as Sean Combs.
What's your favorite concert of all time? Favorite rock 'n' roll movie? And will you be going to see Get Him to the Greek? I sure will!
In addition, for all of you LA rockers, Infant Sorrow and Friends will put on a live one-night-only concert at The Roxy this Monday May 24!
