It's a sleepy publishing Friday, but I woke up (slightly) when I saw this bit of news in the New York Observer about a book deal for $3 million. The new boyfriend Dude (Russell Brand) who was in the movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall (featuring full-frontal naked Jason Segel) turns out to be a British comedian. HarperCollins bought Brand's so-called "book of rants" for that hefty sum. He probably won't even have to revise it, let alone write it himself.
I guess you have to be pretty to get that kind of publishing attention, right? I better get out my eyeliner.
