East Village on Russell Brand alert



The 'Arthur' remake (a travesty that I won't even go into) is filming around Second Avenue and 11th Street tomorrow... The remake stars Russell Brand in the Dudley Moore role... co-starring Jennifer Garner and Nick Nolte....and maybe the old Batmobile.

An "Arthur" remake with Russell Brand? Barf. Don't they ever learn? Maybe Lady Gaga will sing the theme.

Is Nolte the butler?

@Marty. Ha!

@Larry. I'm not sure what Nolte is doing. I read somewhere that Helen Mirren is playing his longtime nanny!
(Seriously)

saw them this morning, filming in a Rolls Royce outside St. Mark's Church. of course the EV is the new luxe neighborhood. if the original Arthur came downtown, he'd be slumming.

Somehow I can't picture Helen Mirren looking down her nose at Russell Brand in a bathtub and enunciating, in tones dripping with exquisite disdain, "Would you like me to wash your dick for you, you little shit?", or whoever plays the Geraldine Fitzgerald character hooting "Peanuts!" with such delight when presented with a dish of Planters.
