Brand Recreates Kerouac's On The Road For Documentary

British funnyman RUSSELL BRAND has recreated JACK KEROUAC's ON THE ROAD adventure for a new BBC documentary. The actor/comedian recently travelled from Massachusetts to San Francisco, California - and admits he learned to love America along the way. He tells WENN, "We were recreating one of the journeys of Jack Keroauc and Neil Cassady to commemorate On The Road. "I had indulged the European prejudices that American people were stupid mostly because of the unnecessary war that's been happening but then when I met American people they were extraordinary. "People that I met in gas stations in Kansas were erudite and beautiful. I met two people who looked like proper yokel hillbillies with spaced out teeth and he's talking to me about (author) Noam Chomsky and the Federal Reserve."
