Russell Brand

The British star shines as a comedian, author and radio host — and as if that doesn't earn him enough headlines, he's married to singer Katy Perry.

Actor and comedian Russell Brand provides the voice of a teenage rabbit who becomes the Easter Bunny in the 2011 film "Hop." Since the rabbit was animated, co-star Kaley Cuoco told E! Online that she never worked with Brand, but instead with a bean bag rabbit. "I prefer the bean bag actually," she joked. "It didn't talk back."

Brand plays the lead character, drunken playboy Arthur Bach, in the 2011 remake of 1981's "Arthur."

She wore a custom-made Giorgio Armani gown and feather wings, and he matched with a Giorgio Armani suit. Their 2010 wedding was held near a tiger sanctuary in India, the same location where he proposed after they'd known each other for just two months.

Brand's character from "Get Him to the Greek" was actually introduced in 2008's "Forgetting Sarah Marshall." Again he played rocker Aldous Snow, a recovering alcoholic and drug addict, with Kristen Bell as Sarah, his new girlfriend.

Brand's autobiography, "My Booky Wook," was published in 2007 and received generally positive reviews. The New York Times Book Review called it "a child's garden of vices." He's since published two other books, including a sequel to "My Booky Wook."
