Before you write off the upcoming film The Tempest because you think Russell Brand will be out of place reciting Shakespeare next to Helen Mirren, check out the trailer!
If you couldn't guess it, Russell's role in The Tempest is the typically drunk jester, Trinculo. And it looks like Russell really has a handle on the role!
And along with the great Helen, Alan Cumming, Alfred Molina, Djimon Hounsou, David Strathairn and Chris Cooper also star in the film!
Even though Russell and Helen have been getting to be close friends while working on both The Tempest and Arthur, the actress told OK! she hasn't been invited to his wedding with Katy Perry!
Maybe that's just the jester in him and the invitation is in the mail!
Check out trailer below!
The Tempest takes over theaters Dec. 10!
