Russell Brand 's quest to conquer America hasn't gone entirely smoothly, performances in hit and miss films such as 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall,' 'Get Him To The Greek,' and 'Arthur' not hugely aiding his mission, but signing up to appear on network FX would certainly help his case a great deal - and the 36 year-old's done just that, with a deal inked for a six-episode half-hour late-night series say The Hollywood Reporter.
Speaking about the announcement, FX executive Nick Grad said, "We look forward to supporting Russell and his partner Troy Miller's ambition to strip down the hosted comedy format to its most fundamental elements and to create something daring and unfiltered for the FX audience;" they'll get daring all right, Brand and comedian Jonathan Ross were famously punished by the Bbc after a series of phone calls to ageing actor ANDREW SACHS ' about his granddaughter - Ross was fined and Brand left his own show.
Brand said of the deal with FX, "I am so excited I'm on the point of climax, in fact I will put the 'O' into FX, which spells Fox, which is actually the channel's real name. That's the only thing that worries me about all this to be honest. At least I'll be able to have a Christmas drink with Bill O'Reilly." On usual form then, let's hope America's ready.
