Baron Cohen has his new movie, THE DICTATOR, in the works, and in line with his other films (BRUNO, BORAT), the funnyman put out an official statement from the character he’ll be playing (a ruthless dictator of a fictional country):
“OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM HIS EXCELLENCY ADMIRAL GENERAL ALADEEN – SUPREME LEADER, ALL TRIUMPHANT GENERAL AND CHIEF OPTHAMOLOGIST OF PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF WADIYA
I am saddened to learn of the passing of my dear friend Kim Jong-Il. Our thoughts go out to his wife and 813 children. ‘K-Jo’ was a great leader, good friend and average double’s badminton partner. He died as he lived, in 3-inch lifts. An extraordinary man, he did so much to spread compassion, wisdom and uranium throughout the world.
On behalf of myself, Ahmadinejad, Chavez and Newt Gingrinch, we would like to welcome his son, Kin Jong Un into the ‘Axis of Evil'”
