Brand's knighthood wish

The actor hopes to be knighted one day

Russell Brand has revealed he is a fan of the royal family and hopes to get a title one day.

During an interview the star joked: "I think that is inevitable".

Brand also admitted he'd love to play Sir Bob Geldof - with whom he had a clash in the past - should a film on the ex Boomtown Rat be made.

His Arthur and The Tempest co-star Helen Mirren praised Russell for his acting abilities.
"He has this ability with language that is almost Shakespearean" said the actress, "and the hair".

The premiere of Arthur is taking place tonight at London's 02 Arena.
