Sacha Baron Cohen arrived in LA the other day in Brothers Grimsby costume. So a lot of people assumed he’d be at the Oscars in Brothers Grimsby costume. And that it’d turn into something ridiculous like the time he went to the Oscars as The Dictator and ashed all over Ryan Seacrest. Full Story

Sacha Baron Cohen’s new movie, Grimsby—unnecessarily retitled The Brothers Grimsby in the US—opens in the UK this weekend, a couple weeks before it opens here in North America. So there was a premiere in London and, as he is wont to do, SBC showed up in character as “Nobby Grimsby”, a working-class Brit who stumbles into the spy life while trying to find his long-lost brother. Full Story

Deadline broke the news yesterday that Sacha Baron Cohen has dropped out of the Freddie Mercury biopic that he’s been working on for a couple of years. Queen has creative approval of the film and apparently Cohen was pushing for a “gritty” R-rated version of Freddie’s story while the band wanted it to be more PG. Full Story

Booyakasha! Let’s start the day on a lighter note... Sacha Baron Cohen was honoured last night in London at the British Comedy Awards. (How low budget is that set? And I would never, ever ask them to change it. There’s a certain charm in that, non?) Ben Kingsley presented. And Ali G accepted. Full Story

It’s a gorgeous suit. It’s a beautiful colour. And he wears it so well. I interviewed Eddie Redmayne at the Les Miserables junket last weekend in New York. He is very, very nice. Doesn’t take himself too seriously, is engaging and friendly, seems kind and humble. It’s hard to not to be happy for him that he has the opportunity in this film to showcase his talent and variety and the best part about that is that, unlike some of his peers, he’s not self-conscious about the role. Full Story

Last week at the Dictator premiere in London I asked Isla Fisher whether or not she’s attracted to General Aladeen. She was like, “God no, he’s vile. But I am very, very attracted to my husband”.I could be very, very attracted to her husband too if he’d stay out of costume now and again. Check him out here at Letterman last night as Sacha Baron Cohen. Full Story

While George Clooney talks to dogs and Stacy Keibler lives at “our house”, her predecessor is in Cannes, getting groped on a yacht by Admiral General Aladeen.  I mean...I guess you always go back to your beginnings. Which means someday I’ll be a nerd again with thick glasses following around mah-jong ladies in Hong Kong. Full Story

Ryan Seacrest is so successful because he's the guy who gets it, right? He laughed it off when Simon Cowell mocked him and they became a comic duo. He sees what the world loves in the Kardashians and lovingly exploits their exploits all the way to the bank. He's trusted by all. He laughs in the face of almost everything. Full Story
