In memory of the main man Tony Benn, we take a look back at his interview with Ali G. Tony was perhaps the only interviewee to talk back to Sacha and challenge him.
Tony Benn was not afraid to speak his mind unlike many politicians (who you vote for and then find out they are sleeping with horses) who just reel off soundbites and cannot answer a question directly.
According to Digital Spy Ali G will be returning to the screens of the lucky people in the US and A in February.
Boka boka boka, boka - is da sounds of a gun when you shoot somebody
The show – called Ali G: Rezurection will feature previous episodes of Da Ali G Show which are yet to air in North America, along with new, original introductions Cohen filmed late last year. The series will also include The Best of Ali G.
French film-maker Louis Leterrier has emerged as the surprise choice to direct Sacha Baron Cohen in the British comic’s upcoming riff on the secret agent genre, now titled Grimsby.
The Hollywood Reporter revealed in August that Cohen was planning a James Bond-style spoof about a spy forced to go on the run with his football hooligan brother. The actor has written the screenplay with Wreck It Ralph’s Phil Johnston. Sacha Was previously spotted filming in the Grimsby area in October.
Queen guitarist Brian May has said that there was no “sensationalist” fall-out between the band and Sacha Baron Cohen over the planned Freddie Mercury biopic.
Baron Cohen was said to have left the project over creative differences, with speculation that he wanted a much grittier portrayal of Mercury’s life than the surviving members of Queen did. May told Classic Rock magazine: “It’s a shame that there were these sensationalist stories about him walking out. None of that was true.
“So we’re in a very good place with the movie, and we remain friends with Sacha and hopefully there will be another project that we will work on together in the future.”
Sacha has been spotted filming for new film ‘The Dictator’ in the streets of New York City. Pictures were taken of Sacha in his full Dictator gear riding a camel through the streets with a suitably large entourage.
There are also pictures of Sacha, in more modest dress being tackled by a waiter after he steal food from an unsuspecting diner at a restaurant.
The pictures do not give much away in terms of the plot, but it can be assumed the camel photos are of the Dictator before he meets his future love – the peasant girl whilst the photos of Sacha stealing food are when the Dictator hits harder times once his new love has reformed his dictatorial ways.
Yo, a few more photos have been leaked of Sacha in his new role of ‘The Dictator’.
Some further plot details have also come to light, and we learn that The Dictator heads to the U.S. for a meeting at the United Nations and finds that his number two has replaced him with an unsuspecting sheepherder lookalike.
As the dictator wanders the city, he meets the owner of an organic food store who turns around his dictatorial thinking, and a romance blossoms between them.
Yo – check this out. The first official pictures have emerged of Sacha Baron Cohen as ‘The Dictator’ where he plays the role of an Iraqi leader who falls in love with a peasant girl (more info here), based on a novel written by Suddam Hussein.
