Russell Brand's Five Best Films

Russell Brand’s Five Best Films is counting down our five favorite movies starring Russell Brand, a stand-up comedian who has managed to carve out a space for himself in the world of feature films. Check out our choices in the gallery below!

Really more of a stand-up than an actor, British comedian Russell Brand has plenty of notoriety across both North America and Europe. An author and an activist on the side, Brand has proved himself to be a man of many different talents. He’s a big supporter of Transcendental Meditation, the technique founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and popularized by filmmaker David Lynch, but stands for many different causes on top of that. With all this going on, Brand is far from uninteresting.

His characters almost always embody this truth. Eccentric rockers, mad scientists, weird dolls, clueless sidekicks—no matter what kind of role he’s playing, Brand is never boring. Since 1994, Brand has done his best to establish a filmography as eclectic as his personality. For the most part, he’s been hugely successful.
