Despite lending his voice to the just-released animated kid's film MADAGASCAR 2, it looks like Sasha Baron Cohen (a.k.a. "Borat") has no intention of having his next film being a family-friendly one . . . Unless we're talking about some sort of backwoods, inbred clan who get their funnin' from huntin', killin' and eatin' city folk.
That film is -- (deep breath) -- BRUNO: DELICIOUS JOURNEYS THROUGH AMERICA FOR THE PURPOSE OF MAKING HETEROSEXUAL MALES VISIBLY UNCOMFORTABLE IN THE PRESENCE OF A GAY FOREIGNER IN A MESH T-SHIRT and by its title alone is clearly in the same mocumentary vein as his blockbuster hit -- (deep breath) -- BORAT: CULTURAL LEARNINGS OF AMERICA FOR MAKE BENEFIT GLORIOUS NATION OF KAZAKHSTAN. The Bruno character, a flamboyantly gay Austrian fashion journalist, was (like Borat) one of the characters Cohen had previously played on his satirical T.V. series DA ALI G SHOW.
In the latter film one of the most memorable (not to mention shockingly hilarious) sequences involved a fight breaking out between Borat and his obese T.V. producer (Ken Davitian) getting into a naked wrestling match that starts in their hotel room and continues throughout the building. The currently-shooting film sounds like it has a sequence that could turn out to be just as outrageous (and hopefully just as funny) since Cohen hired former escort service director David Forest to find X-rated film actors after being rejected by more conservative stars, unwilling to shoot full-frontal nude scenes.
Adult film stars Paul Barba and John Martel were eventually hired for the roles.
Forest describes the scene as follows: ""There's a scene where Bruno comes to the hotel with some guys. They're all trying to get Bruno to come upstairs for an orgy. Five guys are there. Two of them are my guys. Bruno apparently doesn't want to join the party, but he watches through the window. I'm told it's hilarious."
And for those of you with annoying "Michael Scott" (or "David Brent" for those in the U.K.) co-workers should prepare to hear new catchphrases enough time to make your ears bleed.
