'Saturday Night Live': Russell Brand drops the English accent

russell-brand-snl-promo.jpg Russell Brand is hosting "Saturday Night Live" this week -- and since he's in New York, he's relieved he can finally stop using his fake British accent.

Or so he tells cast member Jason Sudeikis in the first of the two promos below. Sudeikis also has some issues with the way Brand delivers another one of his lines -- but not the with the numerous colorful scarves Brand magically makes appear around his neck.

Brand also cut a couple of promos with Andy Samberg. We're not entirely sure what's going on with Samberg's pants obsession.

Brand will be joined by musical guest Chris Brown on Saturday's (Feb. 12) show. It airs at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
