Funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen is at it again … after terrorizing the US a couple of years ago while filming his comedic masterpiece Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, Cohen has now set his sights on terrorizing the fashion world for his new film Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Male. He is so great with those catchy, witty titles, ain’t he? In any event, Cohen in character as Bruno has been attending fashion shows in Milan this week and even went so far as to crash the runway of Agatha Ruiz de la Prada. Here are a couple pics of Bruno sitting front row at one fashion show …

… and then of him storming the Prada catwalk, which resulted in his arrest:


Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen was taken to a police station yesterday after he brought chaos to the Milan  fashion show for the second day running. Despite the increased security after he evaded guards and burst backstage to changing rooms he again managed to get in. Cohen, best known for his bizarre character Borat, caused havoc after storming the catwalk during the Agata Luiz della Prada show. Dressed in a velcro suit he was bundled away by security guards and taken to a nearby police station where he was formally identified. A police officer at Milan Sempione police station said: “A British national by the name of Sacha Baron Cohen was brought here and identified. He did not have any ID documents on him so someone was sent to his hotel when he got here to fetch his passport. He was actually very funny and the first thing he said was ‘Can I make a phone call’ like they do on TV.” Cohen was released without charge and was last night still thought to be in Milan. Earlier this week scantily clad models screamed and security guards dived on him when he burst into a show by Italian designer Iceberg. TV footage screened on Italian TV showed Cohen dressed as his creation Bruno a flamboyant Austrian fashionista. Cohen is in Milan working on a new film called Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Male. The movie is being shot in the same documentary style as 2006’s smash hit Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. Wearing fake passes, Cohen and his film crew managed to get past security to the backstage area of Italian label Iceberg’s show. The footage showed an actor dressed in head-to-toe velcro and wearing a blonde wig running about, screaming and hurling himself at the clothes racks. Iceberg’s flustered stylist, Paolo Gerani, managed to stop the man and have the crew removed. Fashion houses have since tightened up security, and Baron Cohen and his crew were blocked while attempting to enter the Dsquared. Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Male is due out next spring.

I hate to admit it but I kinda think these Sacha Baron Cohen movies are funny. I mean, the first time you hear the jokes they are riotously funny … by the time every dork you run into tries to impress you with their Borat impersonation saying “Sexy time” it’s no longer even remotely funny … but that first time, comedy genius. I have no doubt that this new Bruno movie will be a fun to watch the first time around.

Move over Guy Ritchie, Sacha Baron Cohen and Will Ferrell are stepping up to take on the detective Sherlock Holmes! Cohen and Ferrell have officially been cast in Sony's currently untitled comedy as Holmes and Watson, respectively. While there is no director attached yet, Judd Apatow is producing and Etan Cohen (Idiocracy, Tropic Thunder) is writing the script. The comedy is inspired by Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes tales, but as for where the comedy will come from, we can only expect it will be an over-the-top quirky comedy similar to Get Smart. As hilarious as Cohen and Ferrell are individually, will they be able to actually pull off a comedy better than Talladega Nights?

Columbia Pictures' president Matt Tolmach said of the project: "Just the idea of Sacha and Will as Sherlock Holmes and Watson makes us laugh. [They] are two of the funniest and most talented guys on the planet, and having them take on these two iconic characters is frankly hilarious." Certainly true, but if there isn't a good script and a good director, it won't turn out great. Just look at Talladega Nights - that was one of Ferrell's worst, at least I thought, and it was the first and only film Cohen and Ferrell showed up in together. I think Sherlock Holmes is a character that does have the potential for some hilarious comedy, so let's hope Etan Cohen can write a great script. His work on Idiocracy wasn't impressive, but I'm hoping Tropic Thunder will be better.

The character of Sherlock Holmes first appeared in 1887 and is the creation of Scottish-born author and physician Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. A brilliant London-based detective, Holmes is famous for his intellectual prowess, and is renowned for his skillful use of "deductive reasoning" while using abductive reasoning and astute observation to solve difficult cases. But all of that shouldn't matter, because I'm sure they'll throw out that intellectualism in exchange for some British/Scottish humor. Cohen himself is English and is definitely the perfect actor to take on the role of Sherlock Holmes. As for Ferrell? Let's hope that he pulls himself out of his Semi-Pro rut for the role of Watson

Found at CinemaBlend.com:

"...It’s been known for a while that he was bringing another of his characters, Bruno, to the big screen. It looks like someone caught Cohen filming the character at an airport and captured it on their own camera."



Frankly, as much as I enjoyed Sacha Baron Cohen's role in Sweeney Todd and, to a lesser degree, Borat, this is a major step down for him. It won't work. Too many people know about him now. (Didn't he say the exact same thing himself?!) How can he be taken seriously if he resorts to doing more crap like this?

Sacha Baron Cohen has finally settled on his next few films. First he’s already at work on Bruno, a Borat-like movie based on his least popular character, a gay fashionista named Bruno who makes mid-westerners uncomfortable by flaunting his extreme homosexuality. But once he’s done with that, Variety says he’s likely to end up in to a film called Dinner for Schmucks at DreamWorks.

Directed by Jay Roach, the guy who brought you Austin Powers and Meet the Parents (and was a producer on Borat), Schmucks is based on a French film about a weekly dinner party where the host challenges his friends to bring the most pathetic person they can find as a guest. It’s kind of like one of those asshole frat parties where drunken rich kids bring fat girls and then make fun of them. In this case, the fat girl is Sacha Baron Cohen, as an individual who is such a big schmuck he destroys the personal life of anyone he comes into contact with.

You’ll next see Sacha in Sweeney Todd opposite Johnny Depp as Signor Adolfo Pirelli, his rival.

It doesn't hurt to stick these in here. Unfortunately all the clips of the kiss have been pulled off youtube thanks to the killjoys over at Viacom.

Yay for matching beards & afros.
