Borat Arrives at the Toronto Film Festival


Borat made a surprise entrance at the Toronto Film Festival in 2006 by having his gang of wenches pull him in on a wooden cart. Wow. You can really get Canadian actresses to do just about anything.

Latoya Jackson


Ultimately cut from the film’s theatrical release, Bruno invited Latoya Jackson over for an interview. While there, he hilariously had her sit on “chairs.” In this case, they were Mexican workers he’d hired to act as his furniture. The interview ended as so many with Latoya often do, with her fleeing the room and running to a waiting car. The impetus for this was Bruno’s underhanded method of obtaining her then alive and famously-reclusive brother Michael’s private phone number. After his death, the studio saw fit to cut the scene from the film. But it is available on the DVD and it’s worth watching.

Borat On the Campaign Trail


If I were a Republican on the campaign trail, the last person I’d want to bring along was a television reporter from a tiny nation in a smelly suit. But that’s just was James Broadwater did when he went door to door to visit his constituents. The results? Borat forced his way into people’s homes so that he could “make sh*t” in their toilets, leaving Broadwater and the homeowner awkwardly standing on the front porch.
