    Posted Jun 10th 2011 at 03:15 AM by Moviefone Editors

    No, this is not Sacha Baron Cohen disguised as a Chia Pet, it's the comedian-actor-writer-producer in full garb for his turn as a middle-Eastern despot in his new film, 'The Dictator.'

  • Sacha Baron Cohen's Oscar Skit Yanked

    Posted Mar 3rd 2010 at 07:24 AM by PopEater Staff

    If there was anyone who could fall into the "too racy for the Oscars" category when it came to writing a skit, Sacha Baron Cohen sits at the top of the list. So it's no surprise that the man behind raunchy-yet-hysterical alter egos like 'Borat' and 'Bruno' had his skit vetoed from this weekend's Oscars telecast. Why? Because it apparently contained some jokes directed at 'Avatar' director James...

However, with the release of the movie on DVD, filmmakers opted to include LaToya's part in the extras.

  • From Angus to Beef, Great Moments in 'SNL' Hosting

    Posted Sep 23rd 2009 at 03:30 PM by Dino Sossi

    Thirty-five years, and counting. 'Saturday Night Live,' which has been the subject of so many 'Saturday Night Dead' stories that the show should be on permanent life support, will start its 35th season on September 26th with 'Transformers' starlet Megan Fox as host. Women like Megan for her saucy attitude. Men like her for, well, other reasons. But will she make the grade for perhaps her most...
