On the set of Yuri Cabrera‘s short film “Smile”. While setting up for a shot, Yuri grabbed a camera and had me improv a backstory for my character. So I put on my best Mockney accent and did my utmost to channel the great Russell Brand.
It’s not really a Russell Brand impersonation – more so just my attempt to conjure the spirit of the S&M Willy Wonka. Below, for your viewing pleasure, is Russell Brand’s 5-minute Shakespearean riff on his character Trinculo in Julie Taymor’s production of The Tempest. All hail the Shagger of the Year.
