I set myself on fire on set: Russell Brand

London: British comedian Russell Brand escaped unscathed after he accidentally caught in a fire on the set of his new movie "Get Him To The Greek".

The `Forgetting Sarah Marshall` star reprises his role as hellraising rock star Aldous Snow in the comedy, which also stars Jonah Hill and Sean `Diddy` Combs.

During one scene Brand was lucky to escape unscathed after sparks ignited his costume on set, reports dailystar.co.uk.

"I got set on fire once. There`s a bit in the movie where I do a concert, and there`s a wall of sparks raining down from the heavens. And it caught me on fire. I stood in the wrong place; I caught on fire for a little. That was a bad bit," he said.
