Russell Brand as Arthur

    It's a shame that it takes such a fantastic film to be re-made for people to see how untalented Russell Brand really is. I suppose this was inevitably going to get re-made like everything else but why did it have to be him? What a terrible way to destroy a timeless classic.

    I had to make an account for this site just to comment on this sh*t. I can't believe they're remaking Arthur and casting the most unfunny guy ever as the lead role. I can't believe Brand still has a job after epically bombing at the VMAs

    @ Stiles I agree, Brand has absolutely NO chram; I just don't see the appeal of this obnoxious un-funny dude who HWood is now pushing on everyone. It's like Jack Black went on a diet and we got THIS.

    f*ck me he looks like a recovering herion addict without a beard, which funnily enough...he is.

    I watched the orignal Arthur last night. John Gielgood owns that film. I don't think the Butler role can be improved. Brand has 1/100th the chram of Dudley too.

    He's no Dudley Moor thats for sure! But this could be interesting... Look at it as a re-imagining, nothing else... Could be funny for what it is, but please DON'T compare it to the original two films, you'll just depress yourself
