Russell Brand Charms In Exclusive ‘Rock Of Ages’ Video

Rock of Ages” hits Blu-ray and DVD today and, in honor of the rock musical’s big debut on home video, we’ve got an exclusive new video that celebrates the release.

The clip focuses on star and MTV Movie Awards host Russell Brand. Brand introduces us to his character Lonny in the never-before-seen clip and talks about how he responded to the rock music in the film.

“My character Lonny in the film ’Rock of Ages’ is the representative, I think, of the audience, and the honest-to-God sincere music lover,” Brand explained in the video.

With all his energy and exuberance, Brand has earned plenty of respect from his fellow actors Paul Giamatti and Alec Baldwin. Both gushed about their costar in interviews shown in this clip, with Baldwin in particular being impressed by his costar.

“Nothing could prepare me — I mean, nothing in the world could have prepared me — for what an incredibly clever, brilliant, funny, alive person [Brand is]. He was the most fun to work with, among the best experiences I’ve ever had working with someone in terms of being inventive and loose,” Baldwin said.

Spliced in between the interviews are a couple clips from “Rock of Ages” featuring Brand, but we’re enraptured just hearing him talk about “that gorgeous Diego [Boneta] lad” and “that beautiful Julianne [Hough] bird.”

“Rock of Ages” was directed by Adam Shankman and also stars Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Mary J. Blige.
