Yeah, I know, I know. “Don’t do drugs.”
Any movie starring actors Russell Brand and Jonah Hill is bound to be filled with its fair share of off-the-wall moments and these "Get Him to the Greek" quotes show that their…
Get Him to the Greek is a half-wadded spitball at the entertainment industry and all things not sacred from Judd Apatow factory of funny. The return of infamous British rock star, Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) of Forgetting Sarah Marshall and newcomer music intern Aaron Green (Jonah Hill) must make it to the famous Greek Theater in 72 Hours or both their careers will be left in the dust. From traveling around London, New York, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles this odd-ball duo leave a trail of drugs, sex, and rock 'n roll behind them. It's when the comedy stops and things get serious that the movie creaks along its way to an ending that dearly holds onto whatever “Jeffery” vapors it has left.
With that being said, the DVD/ BluRay release gives us another unrated, post-theatrical look at this comedy, which according the filmmaker's commentary is a push to make comedic movies into a new coined term called “Hard Comedy,” mixing the laughs with dramatic weight.

It's a good thing Jonah Hex can communicate with the dead, because his new movie was D.O.A. this weekend, earning a meager $5.1 million at the box office. The film came in eighth place, well behind the Jonah Hill comedy, Get Him to the Greek, which earned a fourth place finish with $6.1 million.The fact that Get Him to the Greek is entering its third week adds insult to injury, considering the amount of hype Warner Bros. put behind this weekend's Hex premiere. Not to mention the fact that the widely panned Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time was considered box-office poison just a few weeks ago, but now looks like Avatar by comparison, edging out Hex with $5.2 million in its fourth week.

Rose Byrne is an Australian actress. She plays Ellen Parsons in the FX show "Damages," opposite American dramatic institution Glenn Close. Byrne has been in a relationship with Australian writer, director and actor Brendan Cowell for over four years (Boooo!). The couple maintained a long-distance relationship for much of their relationship, with work commitments meaning they were often on separate continents. This means he's a better man than you. A word from Rose: "I see myself more as a character actress than a celebrity."Keep that good head on your shoulders. When you discover you're a celebrity you'll probably want coke, or to kill a homeless person. Apparently it has something to do with power. More pics of professional Rose after the jump.
Zoe Salmon was the host of the children's television show "Blue Peter." Shortly after her debut, she famously said, "I'd try anything once," which started a trend in her being asked to do dangerous or embarrassing things including wing-walking on top of an antique biplane. An antique biplane? What kind of dares are these?!A word from Zoe: "I'd try anything once."Oh yeah? Would you wing-walk on top of an antique biplane? Damnit, why does the mind go straight to that?More pics of Zoe trying getting her picture taken after the jump.
Jonah Hill balks at twelve inches. It's amazing the difference between a trailer that's allowed to show dildos and one that isn't. Sometimes I watch both the rated and unrated promos for a film and still think it's going to blow, but Get Him to the Greek states the perfect case for the necessity of red band. Johah Hill plays a schlubby record label intern who's assigned by big boss P. Diddy to escort rock star Aldous Snow to his comeback concert in Los Angeles. Along the way he gets sex toys in the face, drugs up the butt, and stands really close to Russell Brand, three traditional British customs. Why their ladies worship a man who looks like a mangy Persian cat I'll never understand. Check out the red band trailer after the jump. Get Him to the Greek rocks theaters June 4, 2010.
The first trailer for Get Him To The Greek just hit the Interwebz, and I'll be damned if Nicholas Stoller hasn't done it again. The director and writer of the highly enjoyable Forgetting Sarah Marshall brings back eccentric, hyper-sexual rocker Aldous Snow for a whimsical romp across the pond from Foggy London Town to sunny Los Angeles. Jonah Hill plays record label intern Aaron Green who gets the assignment from big boss P. Diddy to escort Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) to the Greek Theater in L.A. for the first-stop of his comeback tour. Wackiness ensues, with a plethora of sex, drugs, rock & roll, and crusty vomit on The Today Show with Meredith Vieira. Stoller delivered a perfect mix of laughs and heart in Sarah Marshall, and I have no doubt he'll add the same touch to this one. And vomit, of course. Check out the trailer after the jump. Get Him To The Greek blows the roof off theaters June 4, 2010.
