    I loved Ali G, Borat and even Bruno, but the Dictator was crap, and this doesn't look too good but who knows? "Throw the Jew Down the Well...."

    The "Dictator" star is partnering with the studio once more for the comedy.


    Paramount is reteaming with The Dictator star Sacha Baron Cohen on The Lesbian, based on the story of the Hong Kong billionaire who offered $65 million to any man who could marry his homosexual daughter.
    Cohen and his Four By Two Films banner are producing what could serve as a starring vehicle for the actor. No writer is on board at this stage.
    Last week, Hong Kong real estate tycoon Cecil Chao made international news when he offered $65 million to any man that could pry his daughter from her female lover and marry her.

    The 76-year old Chao has never married and is known for his penchant to date much younger women.
    Cohen teamed up with Paramount this summer on The Dictator, which grossed $175 million worldwide.

    I hope he's still going to play Freddy Mercury in that bio-pic.

    That could be a good movie, but I don't know if he has the acting chops for it if it's going to be a drama. I think he's hilarious, but I don't if he is right for the role.

    Maybe I'm crazy, but I think he is so good looking and sexy.

    Me, too. Been looking forward to that since the announcement, and I was never a huge Queen fan.

    Also: :facepalm: @ the lesbian movie

    My first thought was how is this Stern related, but then saw the title of the movie and obviously Howie daughter(s) will be starring in the movie

    The guy is a decent enough actor to do more traditional comedy, I don't get why his star vehicles all have to be such stunts.

    Sacha Baron Cohen was a victim of his own success.

    The Ali G show was fantastic and Borat was (in my opinion) one of the great comedies of all time.

    Unfortunately he became too famous to do that brand of comedy with those characters any longer. He'll still be in successful and funny pictures, but I doubt he will ever be able to write a script that is as remotely funny as any of his past work

    I agree 100%. My husband and I still talk about that interview that Ali G did with Andy Rooney. "Racialist".

    LOVE his shit, but i didn't even bother with the dictator, it looked horrible. i didn't even chuckle at the previews.

    also, i think 'the lesbian' story is bullshit. this JUST happened, and there's "no writer on board at this stage" :rolleye:

    I disagree in this case. Sacha has given Howard 2 Sacha Baron Cohen interviews. 99% of the time he is interviewed in character.

    My 68 year old mother loves him. She saw him out of character on some tv show and asked me who that really good looking guy was and now anytime she sees him on tv she stops what she's doing to watch him.
