Russell Brand: Leaving His Mark on Holly Madison?

By: tracimac / May 14, 2009

One’s a reality-TV star who has a taste for geriatric lovers. The other’s a wild-maned British comedian who may or may not actually be funny.

Can these two kids find love in this crazy modern world?

British newspaper the Sun reports that Russell Brand has begun hooking up with former Girls Next Door girl Holly Madison, whose past boyfriends include Playboy founder Hugh Hefner and, most recently, magic man Criss Angel.

The two reportedly met in Las Vegas, at a party thrown by Jay-Z after the Ricky Hatton/Manny Pacquiao boxing match earlier this month. And, since Brand began filming the Forgetting Sarah Marshall spinoff Get Him to the Greek in Los Angeles, he’s been making sweet time with the former Playboy bunny.

“Russell has really hit it off with Holly. She’s a big star in the US, which he finds really attractive,” says a source. “And his constant tomfoolery has her in stitches.”

Brand has even been paying late-night visits to Madison’s Hollywood Hills home for the business of, uh, pleasure.

“He’s been there three times in the past week and neighbors have heard them ‘enjoying themselves’ loudly,” the source adds.

Uh, ewww?
