Remembering Tony Benn

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.

‘Say what you believe, believe what you say’

Tony Benn – 3 April 1925 – 14 March 2014

Cohen didn’t ‘walk out’ of Queen movie

Uncanny

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.”

The Dictator does NYC

Sacha Baron Cohen - The Dictator

Yo, I iz on a camel.

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.
