Russell Brand has found his Liza.
Greta Gerwig is the last of the principals for the upcoming remake of "Arthur," reported Deadline Holywood, taking the part originally played by Liza Minelli, Brand in the title role made famous by Dudley Moore, and Dame Helen Mirren standing in for Sir John Gielgud.
After years of starring in mumblecore films, Gerwig was introduced to a (marginally) wider audience as Ben Stiller's love interest in "Greenberg," earning rave reviews.
