Russell Brand has launched his new production company, Branded Films.
The British funnyman is keen to expand his skills and has teamed up with partner Nik Linnen to create the organisation, based at the Warner Bros studios in California.
Russell said: "We at the newly founded Branded Films are very excited to announce our new company and the opportunity for puns that it affords us."
The big-haired comic – who made a splash in Hollywood with Get Him to the Greek – is already soliciting scripts in his inimitable style.
"We particularly welcome ideas that could feature a long-haired actor with an unintelligible accent (Rasputin, Tarzan, British Jesus)," he joked.
