London: British comedian Russell Brand says he isn`t worried about being typecast as a comedian.

Brand plays the title character in `Arthur`, a remake of the Dudley Moore movie about a drunk man and his long-suffering staff, but he thinks his choice of only taking comedic roles shouldn`t be an "issue" when put in context of other global events, reports femalefirst.co.uk

"You know, when you consider the BP oil spill, the gradual ecological devastation of our planet, racism and warm, my being typecast doesn`t seem like such an issue," he told Empire magazine.
