Spin-offs are usually a phenomenon of television (see
Joanie Loves Chachi
), but more and more they are becoming a tool of the film industry. Hot off the success of Forgetting Sarah Marshall
, Russell Brand returns as the obnoxious and highly sexual rock star, Aldous Snow. Jonah Hill also returns (as a different character) and has 72 hours to escort said rock star from England to L.A.
Both Hill and Brand played wonderful supporting characters in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. I hope the roles can translate properly into leads and not just be a one trick pony. Time will tell, but the trailer looks promising.
