SACHA BARON COHEN is in talks with Showtime to distribute a new series, but there are no details yet. A promo he released on July 4th makes it seem like PRESIDENT TRUMP may be a target. There were also reports earlier this year that he filmed something with O.J. SIMPSON.
SACHA BARON COHEN is coming back to TV . . . but it's not exactly clear what he's doing. He's in talks with Showtime to distribute a new series that's supposedly similar to "Da Ali G Show".
That's the show where he played three different characters: Ali G, Borat, and Bruno. He would play each character off as a real person, then do interviews where he asked a bunch of idiotic questions.
Each character eventually got its own movie, but Cohen has said they're retired, because they're too familiar, so he can't really fool people anymore with them.
Cohen released a promo on July 4th that was just a 30-second video of PRESIDENT TRUMP insulting him, followed by the Trump University logo.
