After the success of Borat, Sacha Baron Cohen isn't planning to lay low. He has two more big movies in mind, the first of which will focus on his fashion reporter character "Bruno" from "The Ali G Show." Bruno's style is obviously different from Borat's, but they share the same m.o.: to get people to say offensive, controversial or downright stupid things by asking out-of-left-field questions. Bruno was the character who first won me over when I started watching "Ali G," and the segment where he goes to a fashion show is worth a watch.
After Bruno, Cohen hopes to do a comedy titled Dinner for Schmucks, a remake of the French film Le Diner de Cons. Apparently the story focuses on "a weekly dinner party held by a Paris publisher who challenges his friends to bring the most pathetic guest to the gathering." According to Variety, "Cohen will play a character blessed with such extraordinary schmuckiness that he can destroy the personal life of anyone with whom he comes in contact." Something tells me Cohen was born to play that part.
Up next we can catch Cohen in Sweeney Todd this December, playing Signor Adolfo Pirelli, the rival to Johnny Depp's Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Hot.
