In an interview to promote his new big-screen musical Rock of Ages, Digital Spy asked Brand whether he would consider a part in a West End show.
"Yes! I wanna be Fagin, out of Oliver!" he responded, before launching into a rendition of Fagin's infamous tune from the show 'Reviewing The Situation'.
Brand recently insisted that he will be "entirely respectful" of the Dalai Lama, when the pair share a stage in Manchester tomorrow (June 16).
Rock of Ages is out now in the UK and opens Sunday (June 15) in the US.
