So, Russell Brand has resigned from his radio show due to feedback from voice-mail messages that he and Johnathan Ross left for Andrew Sachs, the actor who played Manuel in Fawlty Towers.
That’s fairly surreal.
I haven’t actually heard that show yet, but based on the descriptions of the messages (and I am speaking here as a fan of Brands work) it does sound like a complete and total douchebag move on their parts.
Having said that, this does mean that Russell is without a permanent job and at ALMOST THE EXACT SAME TIME, David Tennant has announced that he will be leaving the role of Doctor Who…
That leads to all sorts of amusing and TOTALLY AWESOME possibilities, doesn’t it?
