According to The Mirror, the actor had a lot of fun filming The Tempest with the comedian.
At the charity screening of The Sorcerer's Apprentice, he said: "He's great. Russell and I were a bit of a double act throughout the movie. It was a lot of fun."
He continued: "We had a lot of fun making it, two weeks in Hawaii. It's a terrible job I have!
"It'll be the first time you see Russell Brand doing Shakespeare - maybe the last!"
