Russell Brand has gone from UK stand up comedian to Hollywood leading man practically over night.

And later this month he returns to the big screen with Jason Winer's remake of the Dudley Moore classic Arthur.

As you may expect Brand takes on the title role of Arthur, a drunken playboy who is being forced to marry.

Arthur marks the big screen debut of director Winer, who has work mostly in television, but he has brought together an impressive cast.

Oscar winner Helen Mirren leads the supporting cast as she takes on the role of nanny Hobson - it's great to see the actress move into a more comedy role.

Jennifer Garner and one to watch Greta Gerwig are the women fighting for the affection of Arthur while Geraldine James, Luis Guzman and Nick Nolte are also on the cast list.

Irresponsible charmer Arthur Bach (Brand) has always relied on two things to get by: his limitless fortune and the good sense of lifelong nanny Hobson (Mirren) to keep him out of trouble.

Now he faces his biggest challenge--choosing between an arranged marriage that will ensure his lavish lifestyle or an uncertain future with the one thing money can't buy, Naomi (Greta Gerwig), the only woman he has ever loved.

Arthur is released 22nd April. Meet the cast of the movie.
