Jennifer Garner: Russell Brand is My 'Arthur'

Jennifer Garner and co-star Russell Brand (pictured below) walk to the set of their new comedy, Arthur, shooting at Le Cirque restaurant on Sunday (July 18) in New York City.

The 38-year-old actress plays the role of a wealthy heiress who’s insecure about her humble background and is about to marry the title character (Brand) in an arranged marriage.

Arthur, which is a remake of the 1981 movie, also stars Helen Mirren and Greta Gerwig.

Jennifer doesn’t get the plum roles does she. Guess she can’t afford to be picky when it comes to movies, takes what she gets offered.

# 2

She’s great – great actress! Wish her the best!

Jillyro, Jennifer has seven other projects in the pipes for the next couple of years, so I’d say she’s definitely getting work and can be in what she chooses. I can’t believe they are remaking Arthur, but I’m mostly appalled that it looks like they are remaking the wonderful Christmas in Connecticut. IMDb says she’s in that too. Blasphemy. ;-)

Ben is a lucky man. This woman is absolutely stunning.

Oh Helen and Jennifer. Why are you doing this film? UGH.

# 6

Aw Russell and Jen look great together! Can’t wait to see that movie!

# 7

another dumb remake.

the original should be left alone. Dudley Moore and Sir John Gielgud were great together.

now we have this schlock

Seriously, Hollywood needs to stop remaking films. Helen Mirren, you can do so much better. Greta Gerwig, too. Eh, Jennifer Garner. She has been making sh!tty films for years now. She’s used to it.

Watch this movie bomb! Jen and Russell look perfect for each other. They both have that crazy look going on…This movie will go straight to DVD…Neither are bankable stars…Is Hollywood so hard up this is all they could get to play these two roles????

Never would’ve thought Russell Brand and Jennifer Garner as a pair. Very interesting dynamic. Loved her in Alias!!

God! Another HW remake that will be substandard and unimaginative and leave audiences with the impression that the theatres would have been better off showing the classic and hilarious original!

U every day with child but were child now?

I am disappointed to see Jen do this remake. Any original ideas in Hollywood?

Isnt Russel Brand a bit young for Jenifer Garner?

@change: um, she’s only like 3 years older than him…that’s nothing compared to some films casting choices

She’s a bit like angelina joli

NOOOooooooo, remaking Arthur!?!?!?!?!?! wtf

Her only flaw is that she is not a prissy cookie cutter Hollywood girl. She has all the makings to be a sexy, gorgeous drop dead seductress or a cute and lovable girl next door character.

She can wear many hats and that is one of the reasons she was chosen for her Alias role, according to it’s creater JJ Abrahams. Never saw the original *Arthur* so have no idea what it was like. Russell Brand has a wicked sense of humor, so I will definately check it out.

Seriously, it’s hard to fit Dudley Moore’s shoes in ARTHUR!! Also, Russell and Jen do not seem to be the right feel for me, but maybe they will surprise the audience. I do LOVE Helen Mirren, she is a phenomenal actress!!!

Good Luck to them~

The original Arthur was classic. My husband quotes it all the time. I don’t know that it should be re-made. I like Jennifer Garner though.

She really looks good! I can not say whether I am excited about this remake,because I haven’t watched the original. Yet I am sure Jen will do just fine since she is a really great actress.

Why remake this wonderful classic? Sir John Gielgud, Dudley Moore, and Liza Minelli were superb. Don’t like Garner or Brand. Why would Helen Mirren agree to be in this?

You’re kidding? BUMMER How can you top or even come close to the original Arthur Bach, and Dudley Moore? I hope it’s not Russell Brand. Dudley Moore was hilarious in that role. Not to mention Sir John Gielgud as Hobson the butler the one-liners were hilarious, Liza Minnelli was great too. They keep remaking all these classics and they just do not compare to the originals. This should not be remade at all. Even the Arthur’s theme by Christopher Cross was cool.

She’s sooo sexy!!!!!!!! :)

I think this is among the so much vital info for me. And i’m glad reading your article. However want to remark on some general things, The website taste is wonderful, the articles is really great : D. Excellent activity, cheers
