Russell Brand is a very unique interviewee as one of Access Hollywood’s producers – and his father – found out on Wednesday night.
At an FX premiere event for the networks summer slate, the late night newcomer grabbed Senior Field Producer Mark Noble’s phone during the Brit’s Access Hollywood interview, and called our man’s dad.
“Mark’s dad, this is Russell,” the Brit said into the phone. “I’m on Mark’s show with Mark.
“I just wanted to say that Mark is doing a wonderful job here. You’ve raised a fine — if a little overly erotic son,” Russell said, using his brand of humor on Mark’s dad, who he’d woken up from slumber on the East Coast. “He’s meeting very nice people at work…You’ve raised a fine young man, sir. Now I need to talk to your wife.”
Unfortunately for Russell, Mark’s mom was asleep and not available.
“Goodbye dad. I love you,” Russell added.
Russell Brand’s “Brand X” premieres Thursday, June 28 at 11 PM on FX.
