If Fox Loves Russell Brand So Much, Why Don't They Marry Him?

Oh, because he's already married to Katy Perry, and because television networks can't legally marry humans. Both valid points. Still, Fox is all about the Brand today. First he was chosen to head up FX's first-ever late-night show. The show's six half-hour episodes will air this spring and focus on Brand's "unvarnished, unfiltered take on current events, politics and pop culture." It's unscripted AND shot in front of a live audience, which should be a pretty exciting combination for someone as unpredictable as Brand. “I am so excited I’m on the point of climax, in fact I will put the “O” into FX, which spells FOX, which is actually the channel’s real name,” he said.

Then, Fox ordered a script for his animated series, to be written by Bob's Burgers writers Dan Fybel and Rich Rinaldi. I'd say it's a crazy day to be Russell Brand, but realistically, being Russell Brand is probably pretty weird most days too.
