Theater-goers don't see Russell Brand in Hop, but his voice work has helped the live action-meets animation family flick finish atop the box office charts for the second week in the row, is reporting.

The news was not nearly as good for Katy Perry's new husband in his starring role as Arthur in the remake of the 1981 LOL comedy.  Sad to report, but Brand is no Dudley Moore.

The movie opened this weekend with a thud, taking in only $12.6 million.  That's at least $4 million lower than studio estimates and doesn't suggest a very bright future for the movie that also stars Jennifer Garner and the great Helen Mirren.
