Well, while we sit around and wonder who the leading lady will be, Sacha Baron Cohen has already found another companion to join him in his latest movie. Sir Ben Kingsley has joined The Dictator as “one of two Middle Eastern characters who factor into the plot.” Variety, ladies and gentlemen, always helpful.
Anyway, fantastic news! Kingsley seems to have a great sense of humor and its always fun to watch a well respected actor get down and dirty with some raunchy comedy. Not to mention that Kingsley and Cohen are also co-starring in Martin Scorsese’s new movie Hugo Cabret. I bet they’re all buddy-buddy now. Swapping stories. I’d like to imagine Kingsley telling the dirtiest jokes and Cohen simply chuckling to himself while sipping tea. That’s how British people have sex, right?
