Russell Brand for prime minister? Not likely. But you just might see him play a revolutionary one day.
In an in-depth interview with BBC Newsnight, the British funnyman revealed that he's never voted in his life and explains why in his view the current political system in the U.K., U.S. and other western democracies is failing the people they're meant to serve.
"It's not that I'm not voting out of apathy. I'm not voting out of absolute indifference and weariness and exhaustion from the lies, treachery and deceit from the political class that's been going on for generations now," the 38-year-old Brand said.
