Sacha Baron Cohen is The Dictator

Sacha Baron Cohen (Ali G, Borat, Bruno) experiences another transformation for The Dictator, and the Huffington Post landed the first photo of the actor in the eponymous role.

Written by Cohen and directed by Larry Charles, the Paramount Pictures production is on track for a May 12, 2012 release and co-stars Anna Faris and Ben Kingsley.

The Dictator tells the heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed. It is inspired by the best selling novel “Zabibah and The King” by Saddam Hussein.

    Looks like it could be fun. Hopefully it’s not another Brüno.

    Bruno was fun to watch in an audience that didn’t know what they were getting into.

    Watching in a theater of Bros. who are expecting Borat 2 produces some interesting reactions.

    Bruno was funnier on the Ali G show. It just was too much in a movie.

    I loved the velcro fashion show, though.

    Ali G was funnier on the 11 0’clock show. Thats where Ricky Gervais started too. And that guy.. Ian something…. hes funny too.

    Bruno was 10 pound of shit in a 5 pound bag.

    The hair is a bit much. Borat and Bruno worked because they were JUUUUSTTT believable to the unprepared. Hell, I know people who think the movies are the real thing. But the facial hair is so extreme it kills the illusion.

    But in the long run he’ll probably pull it off.

    On a slightly tangental note, am I the only one here who opposed the Iraqi war but doesn’t lose any sleep that Saddam Hussein died an awful death?

    I’m normally against the death penalty, but in this case I didn’t mind.

    My sentiments exactly.

    I have a number of reservations about the death penalty. For one there’s too much opportunity for innocent people to be executed.

    But there are a few extreme situations where it doesn’t bother me too much.
