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

This week there was a kerfuffle over Sacha Baron Cohen, invited along with Best Picture nominee Hugo, not being allowed to attend the Oscars on Sunday because he wanted to do his red carpet interviews as his character in his upcoming film, The Dictator. Click here Full Story

All the proof you need that the Academy is run by old white men

Did you see the statistics about the makeup of the Academy? The Academy is 94% white, 77% male, and the median age is 62. That’s quantitative data. Want some qualitative proof?Back in 2007 Sacha Baron Cohen was invited to present at the Oscars. He wanted to do so in character as Borat. Full Story

Can Freddie Mercury be replicated?

Written by Sarah Biopics of musicians are really popular for one very simple reason. It has nothing to do with unraveling the life of a beloved figure or learning the stories behind the songs. People will talk a good game about “honoring the life” and “revealing the person” but it all boils down to one thing. Full Story

The Lakers opened against the Clippers last night and as usual Staples Centre was full of stars including Charlize Theron and Stuart Townsend all loved up courtside, a Posh-less Becks still growing that sh-t all over his face, Sacha Baron Cohen on a rare evening in front of cameras, and the ubiquitous Jack Nicholson, unofficial mascot for the Lakers and, some would argue (with the exception of last year), the Oscars. Full Story

Bruno won the box office this weekend with a $30 million opening, further securing Sacha Baron Cohen’s status as a major power player in Hollywood. Did you see Bruno? I have not yet. Will do this week. But I did receive this very interesting message from Ljubica below: So, my husband I went to see Bruno on Saturday (we live in Phoenix, but we are from Toronto). Full Story

Two looks

Sacha Baron Cohen dropped by Letterman last night to promote Bruno. Up to now, almost all of his interviews have been in character. Not for Letterman. At least not this time. Letterman was ok with Borat, but Letterman doesn’t appear to have wanted to meet Bruno so Sacha talked to Letterman as Sacha, arriving at the studios in non-Bruno clothing, looking great in a suit and hat, but getting back into costume upon departure. Full Story

What will Bruno do?

The LA premiere of Bruno went ahead as planned yesterday and Sacha Baron Cohen, in character of course, also stopped by The Tonight Show for a visit with Conan O’Brien during which Conan could not stop looking at his kugelsack. Bruno hits theatres July 10th but last night on Larry King, Morley said there’s some speculation that the film may need to be recut because there’s apparently a moment when Bruno punks LaToya Jackson into calling Michael Jackson, or something. Full Story
