It's hard to imagine Russell Brand as the lead in a family movie, but the English actor is voicing the Easter Bunny in the upcoming Hop. The movie's from Despicable Me producer Chris Melednadri's Illumination Entertainment, where Brand must have a good relationship after voicing the character of Dr. Nefario in Despicable Me.
Brand's voice is nowhere to be found in the teaser trailer, which instead has the hipster Easter Bunny character drumming along to the 1997 hit "Song 2" from English rock band Blur, perhaps reflective of Brand's real-life musical tastes. (What, no Katy Perry song was available?) watch the trailer >> Posted 11.24.10 by Ryan
