Russell Brand is the host of the FX late-night comedy series "Strangely Uplifting."

On the big screen, Brand recently starred in "Arthur" in the title role, alongside Helen Mirren, Greta Gerwig and Jennifer Garner. Brand also voiced the role of the Easter Bunny in the live-action, CGI-animated hybrid comedy "Hop," opposite James Marsden and Kaley Cuoco.

In 2008 Russell Brand starred in Disney film "Bedtime Stories," which also featured Adam Sandler and Keri Russell. It was in September of the same year that Brand cemented his fame in the U.S., when he hosted the MTV Video Music Awards (VMA).

The year 2009 saw the U.S. release of Brand's writing debut, "My Booky Wook: A Memoir of Sex, Drugs and Stand-Up." The autobiography, already a huge success in the United Kingdom, went on to stay on The New York Times' best-seller list for five weeks in a row. Continuing his stand-up tour in the U.S., Brand's third live DVD was released after originally airing on Comedy Central. The year 2009 ended on an even brighter note for Brand, when he assumed the role as host of the MTV Video Music Awards for the second year in a row and garnered the biggest VMA audience since 2004, with nearly nine million viewers.

In summer 2010, Brand lent his voice to the role of Dr. Nefario in Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment's 3-D CGI feature "Despicable Me." The film also includes the vocal talents of Steve Carell and Jason Segel. More recently, he appeared in "The Tempest," with Helen Mirren and Djimon Honsou, and starred in "Get Him to the Greek" as Aldous Snow. Brand brings the character back to life after a brief nap, following the success of "Forgetting Sarah Marshall." The film, which was written by and starred Jason Segel, grossed more than $100 million at the worldwide box office.

In addition to acting, Brand continues to work on his second book.
