Interesting tidbits about Sacha Baron Cohen (aka Borat):
He's engaged to Isla Fisher, the redhead from Wedding Crashers.
He got his start in Madonna's video, "Music".
He will only give interviews in character.
While he was in character, promoting Borat, he explained that his eleven-year-old daughter was pregnant and he hoped the baby would "be adopted by the singing tranvestite, Madonna."
AT, D and I all liked the movie, though parts of it were unsettling/disturbing. With some of his subjects, Borat didn't even have to say anything; they just revealed themselves in a way that no reporter would ever get them to do.
The movie also showed that Sacha Baron Cohen is pretty smart; he knew exactly how to act in each situation to get the desired response, and he was able to make a bored man in an elevator the visual punchline to a joke.
I don't want to give too much away, but it's the only extended man-on-man nude wrestling scene you'll see all year.
And also, though some people revealed some pretty scary aspects of their personalities, others were very patient and kind to him. So it was an interesting view of how America would seem to an outsider (and a kooky one at that).
He also tried kissing men on the New York subway (not wise).
