Ken Davitian visited the University of Manitoba recently and shared stories from the making of Borat. Mallory was lucky enough to be in attendance, she offered the following details – thanks Mallory! “This guy’s hilarious. He shared tons of stories with us from the making of Borat. We got to watch his audition tape, which was unbelievable. He had everyone convinced that he actually was an illiterate Armenian. At one point Sacha walked off screen because he was laughing so hard he couldn"t keep it together. Ken walked into the audition with an accent, did everything they told him to but would pretend that he was a bit confused about it all. For example, the director or whoever was trying to explain to him how to do this improv exercise and Ken says, "Oh like in the class" then someone in the background says, "Oh sh-t, we got a guy still in classes." At the end of the whole audition Ken drops the accent and in perfect English acts all professional, says thank you and what not and leaves everyone in the room really confused. They had to call Ken"s agent to clarify if this was actually an Armenian who put on a really good English accent for 30 seconds or an amazing American who had them convinced he was Armenian for 45 minutes. Anyway, the audition will be on the special features of the Borat DVD when it comes out. One other story I would like to share is the Pam Anderson story. Most of us would assume for legal and safety reasons that she was in on the whole thing. However, according to Ken all they told her was that something was going to happen and that she should just go on with the rest of her day and they would find her. So we all know what happens next with the bag, and the chasing and she jumps into a jeep. Well this jeep was actually a random passerby and after Pam jumped into the Jeep chaos ensued because no one knew who that driver was, Pam didnt have her cell phone, and she had disappeared. She was gone for 30 minutes and people began to freak out that she was actually kidnapped. Luckily the person driving was super nice and friendly and returned Pam safely to the book signing. As for the shoe that she lost in the parking lot? Another random collected that and nicely returned it in exchange for an autographed photo, which Pam obviously did. Some other fun facts: they were chased by every single law enforcement agency in the country, as long as a camera was running they were absolutely not allowed to ever break character, no matter what no one could get a hold of Sacha"s passport because then they would know he was actually from England, not Khazakstan (sp?), and at one point 2 of the film crew had to spend a night in jail and one of them ate the piece of paper with everyone"s name and number on it so no one else could get arrested, there was even a warrant out for Sacha"s arrest in New York at one point.” Borat Official Synopsis: Sacha Baron Cohen brings his Kazakh journalist character Borat Sagdiyev to the big screen for the first time. Leaving his native Kazakhstan, Borat travels to America to make a documentary. As he zigzags across the nation, Borat meets real people in real situations with hysterical consequences. His backwards behaviour generates strong reactions around him exposing prejudices and hypocrisies in American culture.
