Curious about where Sacha Baron Cohen, the Andy Kaufman-esque comedic genius behind Borat and Bruno, might set his satirical sights next? Wonder no more, as we now know the identity of his next character: climate change skeptic Lord Monckton.
Cohen will also appear in Martin Scorsese's upcoming Hugo, a 3-D adventure set in 1930s Paris about orphan who lives in the walls of a train station. Cohen plays an inspector at the station.
Oh, and don't forget Cohen's next collaboration with director Larry Charles, The Dictator, which is described as, "The heroic story of a dictator who risks his life to ensure that
democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed." It's set to open in May 2012. Word is the film is loosely based on Saddam Hussein's novel, Zabibah and the King.
Nice beard, dude.
