The comedian and actor was pictured in Dublin looking a bit worse for wear as he sported a grey-flecked moustache and beard.
But dont worry guys, hes not aged suddenly, he was just in costume filming new movie Four Kids And It.
Decked out in a regal-looking jacket paired with a silky, patterned scarf, the 42-year-old emerged off set at the Natural History Museum in Dublin looking quite content with the days work.
Based on the 2012 book by noted childrens author Dame Jacqueline Wilson, Four Kids And It tells the story of a group of children who stumble across the Psammead – a magical creature with the power to grant wishes.
As youd expect, the children arent as clever as they think and all hell breaks loose as they use all their knack and cunning to put everything right again.
Brand has been cast in the role of Tristan – an oddball villain that the children must outwit along the way.
The movie, which has no release date so far, also stars Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible – Fallout), Matthew Goode (Stoker) and Michael Caine in supporting roles.
In addition, former Girls Aloud singer Cheryl has bagged a role as well.
Shooting began on the project back in July, with Simon Lewis (Jet Trash) on writing duties and Andy De Emmony (Father Ted) in the directors chair.

Wilsons best-selling novel is a contemporary retelling of Edith Nesbits 1902 classic Five Children And It.
Speaking to the Guardian, Wilson said that Nesbits book was one of her favourites as a child: She wasnt above borrowing ideas from other authors, so I didnt think shed mind too much if I wrote a modern book.
Im thrilled that its going to be a film now. I think families will love seeing how all the wishes go hilariously wrong.
