Russell Brand’s TV talk show, Brand X, has been cancelled by FX, as announced by the network’s CEO John Landgraf Thursday.
Though this must come as a blow for the actor-comedian, it’s not all bad news! FX will be continuing its professional relationship with Russell and has picked up one of his pilots! They're even working on the actor's scripted live-action comedy already!
Looking forward to seeing what Russell has in store for us next!
We can't deny we're quite intrigued over Russell Brand's new FX comedic variety series Brand X, and were pleasantly amused by this nugget we found on Brand's personal Twit page.
In the promo-vid, Russell has managed to convince a friend to paint over some Katy Perry-themed graffiti on a Brand X Sunset Blvd. Billboard, which was originally designed by graffiti artist Shepard Fairey!
Even though she's always worn similar confections (even before Katy Perry), Russell clearly assumed she was trying to pose as Katy with an Aldous Snow look-a-like (one of Russell's characters).
Earlier we posted a video of Russell walking off the red carpet, talking to his publicist with such seriousness - such we wouldn't expect from a comedian who poked fun at his marriage on MTV.
But now you can see his exact reaction! AND his publicist's! (Who really is the one to blame for all this, right? Where the hell was she, sweeping the carpet to make sure her client had a heads up?! Hmm?!)
Ch-ch-check it ouuuutttt (above)!! And tell us what U think!!
Our colorful La Coacha went to show some love at Russell Brand's Brand X premiere… but instead of getting any luvin' back, she felt the hate!
After Russell began walking the red carpet, he noticed a man donned in an Aldous Snow costume (the character he played in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek).
But right next to ole' Aldous was La Coacha — fully-dressed in one of her favorite candy dresses. Now, if you know our gurl, then you know she LOVES to wear all sorts of creative garb for her red carpet events! It's her thing! Deal with it! Ha!
Unfortunately, Russell did not like it as much as everyone else did. He grabbed his publicist and walked off the red carpet having some serious words with her!! He was PISSED OFF… and totally offended.
Because you see…. La Coacha's candy dress had been viewed as a Katy Perry get-up! So Brand's publicist quickly came over to tell her what she was doing was "not cool."
But hold up! La Coacha's been wearing candy for a looooong time… it's not exactly something KtP holds ownership over (though we do love her peppermint boobies personality).
So, Mama June either wants back on TV or she wants her money!
The matriarch's lawyer explained that June and the whole family are ready to fire up the show again, and if TLC doesn't give them the same treatment as the Duggars, then they think they'll have no problem getting $1 million in court.
They gave the demand on Friday and will wait a week to see what happens.
Are U interested in watching either of these shows anymore???
