Noel turns gay for Russell

Oasis star to appear in Brand film

Noel Gallagher has landed a role in the film version of Russell Brand’s autobiography – playing a ‘seedy homosexual’.

The Oasis star has reportedly agreed to be in the movie of My Booky Wook movie – as has Little Britain’s David Walliams

Brand is also trying to persuade Michael Palin to make an appearance, but has not yet been successful.

‘David will be playing himself, as my love rival,’ the comic told the Daily Mirror. ‘Michael has said really nice things about me so I'm hoping he'll play a character in it - a vindictive headmaster.

‘Noel Gallagher will be in there, playing a seedy homosexual. He'll be a sexually androgynous, amorphous character - it'll be mad.’

Bur Brand did have one reservation about his own performance: ‘It is difficult doing those sex scenes - it's very awkward. I feel like I really ought to put on a gold medal display of sexual moves.’

The film, to be made by Michael Winterbottom, will be shot this summer.
