'Get Him To The Greek' is one of my favorite comedies ever. I've seen it countless times, can quote all the scenes, the whole nine - and I'd put Diddy's performance up there with any comedic acting performance of the past 20 years....
Today in My Mom's Basement, I had Yungblud on to discuss his new album, 'weird!' (OUT NOW), and we got into Russell Brand's character from the movie a bit (being I've heard Yungblud say he takes inspiration from Aldous Snow in a British rock n' roll "don't give a fuck" type way).
It made me go back and watch the movie again this week with Trent, and shit - I don't think we talk NEARLY enough about what a funny fucking movie 'Get Him To The Greek' is. I'd put it over 'Knocked Up', 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall', and a bunch of others from that era.
Maybe I'm biased because the whole British rock n' roll thing has always fascinated me, but I really think it's a near perfect movie.
Check out the pod now for Yungblud's thoughts on songwriting, the music industry, and more!!
