Russell Brand on kissing Alec Baldwin: "I was glad of it...what a beauty"

Coming up this evening at 9, Piers Morgan invites actor, comedian, and fellow British television personality Russell Brand to join him in studio for a face to face, no holds barred conversation that covers everything from loves and laughter, to guns and the use of very, very big words.

A return "Piers Morgan Live" guest, Brand finds himself facing a most unusual question:

"What was it like kissing Alec Baldwin?," asks Morgan, referring to the pair's infamous "Rock of Ages" on-screen smooch:

"He's got big strong, alpha tendencies and he was very wise. And kissing him, it seemed like a very natural thing to do. Like, at the beginning, I was worried about it, because it's not my particular persuasion. But by the end, I was glad of it," Brand reveals.

Taking note of his favorite form of social media, the host reviews one of Brand's 140 character offerings:

"You did tweet, "Is it now legal to do a gay marriage in New York City, Alec Baldwin," says the "Piers Morgan Live" host. "Carpe diem."

Showing his love for language, and Latin, the guest offers his own definition:

"Carpe diem, seize the day. Seize Alec Baldwin," he exclaims, as the two Brits laugh. "Grip any part of that man you can, from his muscular biceps to his thick, gorgeous waist. Grip his chin. Bury your head in his dimple. What a beauty."

Watch the clip as Brand goes on to explain the origin of his vast vocabulary (he reveals and defines himself as a "satyromaniac,") then tune in tonight at 9 for the full "In the Chair" interview, as the 38-year-old from Essex, England opens up about more serious fodder, including gun control, and his own personal relationship with firearms.

    I'm a bit annoyed that two Brits are sitting around talking about AMERICAN DEMOCRACY, and what civil liberties are to AMERICANS. Especially knowing that Piers was involved with the British tabloid scandal of phone hacking. I really don't care what two Brits, Piers and Russell, two Brits interested only in personal fame, have to say about my American Democracy. It's not MY cup 'o tea.....

    Hello nankiss, Piers is Innocent of the phone hacking allegations which you referred to in your post. Piers stated under oath: " I have never hacked a phone, I have never told anyone to hack a phone nor to my knowledge published any story obtained from the hacking of a phone. " I continue to Support and Stand with Piers regarding his alleged phone hacking activity. Piers Morgan is an Innocent man.

    I inferred from your post that you are obviously not fond of British people. I on the other hand love Britain so much that I traveled over there numerous times for several years.

    I was very interested in the lively conversational exchanges between Piers and Russell during Piers Morgan Live.

    Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
