The Get Him to the Greek actor made headlines in his native U.K. last month (Oct13) by branding the country's political set-up unworkable and calling for a revolution to end capitalism.
Now Gillespie has joined singer Morrissey in throwing his weight behind Brand's controversial campaign, telling NME magazine, "Good on Russell. You've got (British Opposition leader) Ed Miliband talking about responsible capitalism - there's no such thing as responsible capitalism. By its very nature it's irresponsible and exploitative. So I can understand why Russell said what he said."
