UNIVERSAL CITY, California — The world is Russell Brand’s oyster. Well, perhaps not the world, but certainly the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City — that’s the site of the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, which Brand will lord over and command with his own unique (wait for it) brand of comedy on Sunday at 9 p.m. ET.
“MTV Movie Awards incorporates two of my favorite things. Movies and Awards. If somehow group sex could be involved it would be the greatest night of my life,” Russell Brand said when he was first announced for the hosting gig. Well, it looks like he’s doing his best to fulfill that wish — from the looks of it, he could be well on his way toward an encounter with some goddesses.
Brand, already knee-deep in preparation for the big night (even if former host Andy Samberg doesn’t think he’ll need to do much prep work), has been spending time on the Movie Awards stage this week, and he’s set his sights on a particular celebrity’s seat: none other than the party god himself, Charlie Sheen.
We’ve long held a theory that tiger blood is transferable simply by physical contact with any possession belonging to Mr. Sheen. If that truly is the case, Brand is officially walking on Sheen’s winning path. We appreciate the effort, Russell, but don’t you think you’d have better luck on that Group Sex Awards goal by actually attending one of Sheen’s never-ending parties? Just a suggestion, take it or leave it!
