They say the truth is stranger than fiction and Sacha Baron Cohen had only to look through recent headlines to find the inspiration for his next comedy project.
Tentatively titled, "The Lesbian," the movie will be loosely based on the newsworthy story of Hong Hong billionaire Cecil Chao Sze-Tsung who made the offer of $65 million to any male suitor who can win over and marry his lesbian daughter.
Making excited movie-goers wait just a bit longer to check out their new flick, Universal Pictures has decided to move the release date of “Les Miserables.”
While first being set to hit theaters on December 14th in what would have been a faceoff against “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” the Tom Hooper directed movie's release date has been pushed back to December 25th - as it joins “Django Unchained”, “The Guilt Trip” and ”Parental Guidance” as the big Christmas Day films.
Making an out-of-character appearance, Sacha Baron Cohen was a guest on Friday's (May 18) episode of the “Late Show with David Letterman” to discuss the release of his newest film “The Dictator.”
A clean-shaven and witty Cohen spoke with the talk show host about Hollywood parties, jokingly saying, “Generally, it’s best if I stay home,” adding, “I generally make faux pas, I don’t watch a lot of television or film so I don’t recognize a lot of the faces,” which he explained has landed him into some awkward situations.
It has been a long time coming, and earlier today (May 10) “The Dictator” held its UK premiere in London, England.
Never one to disappoint, Sasha Baron Cohen was in full uniform as he showed up at the Royal Festival Hall to greet the masses of fans who gathered to catch a glimpse of the spectacle - with his lovely actress wife Isla Fisher and pregnant co-star Anna Faris also making appearances on the red carpet.
