Anna Faris Joins Sacha Baron Cohen's "The Dictator" Comedy

Posted: May 3rd, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Anna Faris Joins Sacha Baron CohenSubmit Comment
Anna Faris is in negotiations to play the female lead in "The Dictator," the new comedy starring Sacha Baron Cohen. Larry Charles, who directed Cohen's "Borat," is set to helm.

Plot: the heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed." Cohen is said to play dual roles of a goat herder and a deposed foreign ruler who gets lost in the US.

Ben Kingsley and Jason Mantzoukas are also in the movie, playing characters from the Middle East. Faris will play the owner of a Whole Foods-style store in New York.

The movie is being done in a similar manner as "Borat" in the sense that Cohen and his team are looking for people with very strong improvisational skills. The plan is to begin filming on June 5th in New York and Spain.

Cohen better make the most of this character because I can't see how many other places he can go in America without people recognising him.

There's still tons of pockets in the backwoods south that don't have TVs or pop cultural relations.

...and yet they still seem to find ways of listening to conservative radio...

I don't quite understand the story to this one: is he roleplaying a dictator roleplaying a goat herder?

I love Anna Faris, but I'm not so sure about this.
