Russell Brand 'Relives Drunken Hell' On Greek

Russell Brand doesn't mind playing a drug-addicted musician in his new movie.

The British comedian, who plays the role of Aldous Snow in Nicholas Stoller-directed movie 'Get Him to the Greek', admits he draws on his own experience of drugs to play the role.

He told movie website ComingSoon.net: "It's really good because it's more fun to play him on drugs because now it enables me to relive the better aspects of my own drunken hell without some of the terrible consequences.

"I think it was written with my personal problems in mind so yes, I was able to bring a lot of that to the script.

"I went through all of those years with a crack and heroin addiction I might as well get some money out of it. It cost enough. It was expensive. You get beaten up and go to crack houses. There's a down beat in a crack house."

'Get Him to the Greek' is a follow up to 2008's 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall', and features a number of cameos from stars including Russell's girlfriend Katy Perry, pop star Pink and music mogul P. Diddy.

Recently it was revealed a kiss between Russell and Katy had been cut from the final edit of the film.

'Get Him to the Greek' is due for release in the US on June 4.
