Just be thankful he beat Rob Schneider to it.
Except for Walton Goggins.
He’s such a butterfingers.
Ugh, it’s so hard to care.
This is a controversy in the same way a “too-soon” Whitney Houston Facebook post is a controversy.
The Academy must be trying to set some sort of record for how terrible and self-important an organization can be.
Has Sacha Baron Cohen pulled a ‘Love Guru’?
He’s going to buy Django’s wife wIth no repercussions at all, I presume.
We would all feel a lot better if this guy was a fictional character.
These top “Talladega Nights” quotes will have you laughing. The movie stars Will Ferrell as top race car driver, Ricky Bobby. John C. Reilly plays his trusty sidekick, Cal Naughton…
Reilly will be playing a bikini model and Fox will be playing a lovable oaf. Wait. That can’t be right…
He looks like Hipster Abraham Lincoln.
Faris has been offered the lead female role in ‘The Dictator’. Will it be one of the rare, funny Anna Faris movies?
He’s finally over ‘The Love Guru’.
Sacha Baron Cohen is holding court to determine who will be in his latest movie ‘The Dictator’. These actors will try to curry Cohen’s favor, and have their rivals… eliminated.
Over the years, Fox’s proposed reboot of 1947′s ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ has collected more comedian interest than a hot asian girl at a stand-up club wearing a tight Ghostbusters t-shirt.
‘GI Joe 2′ and ‘Hugo Cabret’ get release dates from Paramount. The first one they can keep for themselves, thank you.
Finally, something to be thankful for.
We’ve previously reported that Sacha Baron Cohen and Larry Charles were working The Dictator. Now the actual release date has been announced.
It looks like Sacha Baron Cohen will be playing it straight(ish) in the newly confirmed Freddie Mercury biopic.
Sacha Baron Cohen is eyeballing a remake of the Spanish film Torrente. The film follows the exploits of a fat, racist, corrupt cop who is fired from the force but continues to work the beat regardless. Why didn’t anyone tell me Spanish cinema is so awesome?
I was inspired to come up with a list of on-screen erections. It’s a dirty job, but someone has to do it. At least that’s what my editor said in a threatening tone.
Hopefully the third time’s a charm for director Larry Charles and Sacha Baron Cohen. Actually, the first two times have already proven to be quite charming, as they consisted of Borat and Bruno. Even so, here’s hoping for a three-peat.
Sacha Baron Cohen has signed on to play Queen front man Freddie Mercury in an upcoming biopic, Deadline is reporting. The film will be written by Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen), and will be financed by GK Films, in conjunction with several other companies including Queen Films, which is made up of the surviving members of Queen. Production will begin in 2011.
Will Cohen be able to pull off the flamboyantly gay showman that was Freddie Mercury? Considering his character of Brüno makes Mercury look like Pat Robinson, I'm assuming he'll do just fine. In fact, if my understanding of Mercury is accurate, it will be a lot like the Brüno movie, except instead of being Austrian he'll be British, and instead of having a happy ending he'll die of AIDS. Basically Brüno meets Philadelphia.
In his version of 3D, audiences walk out with a black eye.Martin Scorsese's next project is a 3D adaptation of Brian Selznick's novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret. The director has been quoted in the past saying that he doesn't like 3D just for 3D's sake, meaning stuff flying at your face is bunk, but it seems Scorsese has quickly changed his tune. According to his longtime editor Thelma Schoonmaker, who recently spoke to a masterclass at Aruba International Film Festival, Scorsese is all about getting up in your face with his film now:“Scorsese is in love with [3D]. He looked at Avatar and Alice [in Wonderland] and Scorsese didn’t feel that the 3D he saw was as interesting as in the old ones like Dial M for Murder and House of Wax. He’s decided he wants to be stronger with 3D to make it jump out at you. He’s going to go a little bit further with it.”Daaaaaaaamn, Marty. You dissed Cameron and Burton in one fell swoop. Actually your editor did by proxy, so maybe you should consider putting a muzzle on her.The Invention of Hugo Cabret is written by John Logan (Gladiator, Aviator) and stars Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, Asa Butterfield, and Chloe Moretz. It's Scorsese's first foray into 3D, and he's extremely excited about molding the technology to his very specific stylings. I'm personally jazzed to see this one on December 9th of next year. Even though it's a family film, I've read the book and can confirm that if you possess a soul you're guaranteed a whimsical good time. If you don't have a soul, you can proceed with killing helpless small animals in your mother's garden. (/Film)
Director: Martin ScorseseCast: Chloe Moretz, Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, Asa ButterfieldSynopsis: Concerns a 12-year-old orphan who lives in the walls of a Paris train station in 1930 and a mystery involving the boy, his late father and a robot.Release Date: December 9, 2011
Paramount has won the rights to Sacha Baron Cohen's next comedy film after sending goats to the actor and his reps. That's right. Goats. They also gave him $20 million against 20% of the first-dollar gross. Which means he could stand to earn.. umm…. uh…. carry the one…consult with Clippy…. uh…. a lot of money. So that helped to seal the deal too.The film will star Cohen in a dual role, playing two characters we've yet to see. One is a goat herder and the other a deposed dictator who gets stuck in America. But back to the goats. Deadline reports, "visitors to WME were greeted by a goat wandering across the 3rd floor atrium — that is, until Ari Emanuel had the goat removed after it took a dump in the hallway."No fair. Brett Ratner dumps in that hallway all the time and he's still allowed to make deals.
Martin Scorsese has been busy casting his adaptation of the children's fantasy tale The Invention of Hugo Cabret. Sacha Baron Cohen and Ben Kingsley are in talks to sign on as a train station investigator and famed silent filmmaker George Méliès respectively. Asa Butterfield (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas) has been hired to portray the lead character, who lives in the walls of a Paris train station while trying to repair his dead father's robotic invention. Up and comer Chloe Moretz is also signed on for the female lead role of Isabelle. Man, between Kick-Ass and Let Me In, 13-year old Chloe Moretz is soooo hot right now. Like, really really hot. I didn't mean it like that, guys. Oh, come on. *sigh* Alright. I'll go warn my neighbors about me. (Deadline)
Columbia Pictures is getting serious about a second sequel to Men in Black by tossing some names of weirdos into the ring. It's believed that Josh Brolin is on board for the third film and now there are reports that they want either Brüno's Sacha Baron Cohen or Conchord Jemaine Clement for a character named "Yaz."It's not known at this time if the character will be an alien or an agent (though wouldn't he be named after a letter were he an agent?). Both actors excel at weird, broad comedic performances and would be a perfect fit in the MiB universe. Though I'm not sure about Cohen. They already did the Ballchinian thing in part two. (Bloody Disgusting)
He's oozing sense of humor. James Cameron has weighed in on the decision to cancel a Sacha Baron Cohen Avatar skit from Sunday's Oscars in order to spare the director's feelings. He tells E!:"I don't know anything about that … I don't produce the Oscars. If they want to poke fun at 'Avatar' Sunday, that's okay by me." Show co-producer Bill Mechanic denies the allegations and comments:"It was a little too MTV for everyone."Oh right. This year's Oscars are about respect and gravitas and not fun party vibes. I forgot about that. I guess that means awards DJ Joel Madden won't be playing Diddy's "I'll Be Missing You" over the celebrity death montage. (Vulture)
