First look at Russell Brand as Arthur!

Looks like Russell Brand has paid the Demon Barber of Fleet Street a visit!

The actor is currently filming the remake of the beloved Dudley Moore/Liza Minnelli comedy “Arthur”, and Splash News has snapped the first pic of the Katy Perry-bangin’ funnyman on the set!

There’s a bit of a height difference…. speaking, of course, about the hat that Brand wears, and the one that Moore wore in the original.

Makes me wanna dig out “Arthur” tonight… if even for some “When you get caught between the Moon and New York City…I know it’s crazy, but it’s true…If you get caught between the Moon and New York City…The best that you can do …..The best that you can do is fall in love”.

“Arthur”, directed by Jason Winer (of “Modern Family” fame), co-stars Greta Gerwig (“Greenberg”), Helen Mirren, Jennifer Garner and everyone’s favourite Prince of Tides (or is it ‘Tirades’?), Nick Nolte.
