Sacha Baron Cohen, the comedic genius behind Ali G, Borat, and Bruno, is slated to play his latest character in 2012, and it will surprise some: Saddam Hussein. Â The Dictator is a comedic film adaptation of a book thought to be wrote by Hussein himself, and considering how well Cohen pulled off the Borat look, Saddam Hussein isn’t much more of a stretch.
For those who had heard that Baron Cohen would be playing Freddy Mercury at some point, apparently that’s still a thing, but it’s unclear whether the Queen movie is going to be coming out before or after the Saddam movie. Â Either way, they’re both bound to be worth the price of admission.
