Preparing for an interview with Russell Brand is basically a fruitless endeavor, in that he will take whatever question you manage to ask, half answer it and then digress into sordid and/or hilarious territory. Such was the case when I chatted with him at the "Arthur" press day over the weekend, where a discussion about a 35-year-old billionaire with a nanny lent itself toward the ridiculous.

Eventually, we got around to discussing the movie adaptation of Neil Strauss' Motley Crue bio, "The Dirt," and the fact that Strauss recently told me that the film's screenwriter Rich Wilkes wants Brand to play Tommy Lee.

Before I even got to my actual question as to whether he'd be interested in the movie, Brand pronounced the man he'd like to play: "Nikki Sixx!"
