I understand why Russell Brand would choose to voice the Easter Bunny in the latest anthropomorphic wet fart brought to you by the same guys that brought us Alvin and the Chipmunks: Apocalypse. He’s an annoying British twit with a three-day expiration date, so he has to must capitalize before the rest of the world cuts through that accent and sees him for what he really is: This generation’s Yahoo Serious, an epic Yo Yo whose charm apparently resides in his drunken slurring.
But James Marsden? You are better than this, and Hollywood consistently fails to realize your true comedic potential. This guy is funny, and charming, and has great dimples. He’s also kind of fluffy, isn’t he? But he consistently makes terrible, terrible films (and is apparently the go-to guy for live-action/CGI hybrids).
Anyway, Marsden and Brand will star in Hop, which opens in April ahead of Easter. This Easter Bunny poops jelly beans in it. I think that’s all you need to know.
