So what exactly does it take be a rock star? Prepare to have your minds blown, folks, courtesy of hilarious, eccentric and, as it turns out, quite contemplative 'Get Him to the Greek' star Russell Brand.

One of the most anticipated comedies of the year, 'Greek' doesn't come to theaters until June 4, but Moviefone hit the Culver City set for an early look the spin-off to 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall,' where we talked to Brand, co-star Jonah Hill and director Nick Stoller.

Brand reprises his role as rock god Aldous Snow, who has fallen off the wagon just before a momentous anniversary concert. It's up to a record label intern (Hill in a role different from his 'Sarah Marshall' character) to clean him up and get him to Los Angeles' famed Greek Theater in time for his performance. Along the way, they get caught up in drug smuggling and various near-death encounters, among other hiccups.

So back to being a rock star: What does it take? We'll just say it apparently has something to do with "the willingness to embrace death" and the "energy of Dionysus." Yeah, you're just going to have to watch.


Here's how you can get to the Greek Theater.
