Oasis star Noel Gallagher has declared he’d like to write a sitcom with his good mate Russell Brand.
The musician, who penned the theme tune to The Royle Family, has admitted he’d like to team up with zany comic Russell when he retires from writing lyrics for the band, according to reports in The Sun.
He said: “I’d like to be part of a team of scriptwriters. I think I’d be good. Russell has been trying to rope me into something but at the moment I can’t commit to anything outside Oasis. But, one day. Who knows?”
Noel, a regular on Russell’s Radio 2 show, thinks that he and Russell get along so well because they’re so different.
He explained: “Russell’s a big posh Essex boy former junkie who’s been to the dark side and got into Hare Krishna. He’s never seen a council estate.
“I’m a gruff Northerner who drinks Red Stripe. He finds that fascinating. He’s all ‘But Noel darling, don’t you believe in a higher existence?’ and I’m like, ‘Not dressed in a sheet banging a tambourine, you big Jessie’.”
The two are such good mates that the wild-haired comic, who caused a stir at the recent MTV Video Music Awards, claimed that he’s basing his character in the upcoming sequel to Forgetting Sarah Marshall on Noel.
He said: “In Get Him To The Greek, Aldous is now back on drugs. With him being awful rather than clean I can use my friendships with British rock stars more successfully. Noel Gallagher will be a much better resource.”
