Sacha Baron Cohen Launches Raucous 'Dictator' Trailer
You've seen him as the culturally naive Borat, and as the sex-obsessed Bruno. Now get ready for Sacha Baron Cohen as The Dictator, basically a fictionalized version of Moammar Gaddafi who gets exiled to the U.S., "the birthplace of AIDS," as he calls it.
While adapting to the culture shock, Cohen's bearded, Middle Eastern ruler named General Aladeen finds himself attached to a lovely American foody played by Anna Faris. He also meets a New York official played by John C. Reilly, who says he should see the Empire State Building before it gets taken down — by one of Aladeen's (Middle Eastern) relatives.
Such goofy dismissal of political correctness is to be expected from Cohen, among other shockers. Check out the first trailer for just a taste:
