Sasha Baron Cohen is the master of different characters. My all time favorite character of his used to be Borat, but after watching him dump “Kim Jong’s” ashes all over Ryan Seacrest at the Academy awards, I might have a new favorite. Cohen’s publicity prank was in character as “His Excellency Admiral General Aladeen”, surrounded by a bevy of beautiful bodyguards a la late Gaddaffi.
The movie is about a dictator with a cult of personality who remains strong despite the ousting of Gaddaffi, the overthrow of Ben Ali in Tunisia, and the death of Kim Jung-il in North Korea. You have to wonder just how far this guy will go… this is the guy who has played some pretty over the top characters, from the extremely sexist and racist Borat to the over the top flamboyant Brüno. You have to wonder what is off limits for this guy, and what’s in store for us with his newest film.
Oh, and to top it all off, Bobby Lee is going to be in it! That’s right, the dude from MADtv, Harold and Kumar, and Pineapple Express. If that’s not enough of a reason to watch this movie… well guess what, everyone’s favorite hotty Megan Fox is in it as well.
Sasha Baron Cohen and Bobby Lee being ridiculous, Megan Fox being ridiculously hot, and you get one great movie. I’m stoked to see if this can top Borat for Sasha’s best character yet. Check out the trailer, this guy is a genius.
