Jason Segel: Russell Brand's Going to Be A Huge Star


Russell Brand's audition for Forgetting Sarah Marshall was perfect that encouraged Segel to give him Hugh Grant's part.

Russell Brand's breakthrough movie role in Forgetting Sarah Marshall was originally intended for Hugh Grant. The film's writer and star Jason Segel has revealed he dreamed up Grant as his onscreen love rival in the film, but had to rejig the part when Brand blew him away at an audition.

Segel tells 944 magazine, "The part was originally written to be a British author, like a Hugh Grant type. Russell walked in to audition, and was so charismatic and good. It was a different choice, but made perfect sense. He captured that guy you totally hate and is dating your ex-girlfriend."

"He was perfect. He's a consummate gentleman and a pleasure to act with... Russell's going to be a huge star," he adds.
