Have you heard about British alt-rocker Aldous Snow? He’s a notorious black-wearing, lady snagging fashionista. And also: he’s not real! Aldous Snow is actually Russell Brand, a British comedian/DJ famous for dressing like a cross between a 1970’s bohemian and a 2000-era emo. And maybe with a little Keith Richards thrown in. He’s turning heads in the current film Forgetting Sarah Marshall, where he plays Kristen Bell’s arrogant rocker boyfriend. We suspect big things are in store for this scruffy actor in America.
Watch an interview with Russell Brand at this year’s SXSE.
