    According to The Hollywood Reporter, Palin’s interview did not make the final cut of the show, which also features segments with O.J. Simpson and former Democratic congressman Barney Frank. Such a decision was hinted at by Showtime president of programming Gary Levine earlier this month after he said that Cohen has a “very high bar” for what makes the final cut.....News that Palin may be involved in the show emerged last month after she revealed that Cohen had duped her by posing as a disabled veteran eager to discuss issues facing the country. “Cohen pretended to be a disabled veteran...

    In his latest episode of "Who is America," Sacha Baron Cohen tricks the leader of a pro-gun group into putting a sex toy in his mouth as part of a fake defense strategy to survive beheadings. Disguised as Israeli terror expert Erran Morad, Cohen "trains" Youth Shooters of America president Dan Roberts on how to survive a terrorist beheading by biting the attacker's genitalia and yelling orders. According to its website, Youth Shooters of America is a group that helps organize "shooting events, social events and media coverage for the youth shooting sports." Cohen asks Roberts if the organization is...
  • Sacha Baron Cohen Uses ‘Pedophile Detector’ on Roy Moore

    Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen used a fake “pedophile detector” to goad accused child molester Roy Moore during Sunday’s night episode of his show Who Is America? Moore, whose Alabama Senate candidacy was derailed in October after he was credibly accused of molesting a 14-year-old girl, ends the interview soon after Cohen brandishes “the latest Israeli gadget”: a wand that supposedly beeps when it detects a pedophile. “It’s very simple to use,” says Cohen, impersonating a former Israeli intelligence officer. “You just switch it on, and because neither of us are sex offenders, it makes absolutely nothing.” The wand then beeps...
  • Rep Jason Spencer Screams the N Word Over and Over on Sacha Baron Cohen’s Showtime Series

    Rep. Jason Spencer just made it way too easy for Sacha Baron Cohen. The Georgia state representative’s episode of “Who Is America?” premiered on Sunday, and it is pretty easy to see why Spencer threatened to sue Showtime to stop his “training film” from airing. First, Baron Cohen’s character Cpt. Erran Morad, who is an anti-terror expert who definitely did not spend 13 years in Israeli intelligence agency Mossad, has Spencer try to convince a person wearing a burka that he is a Chinese tourist. The exercise is pitched as a way for Spencer to inconspicuously take what is generally...

    Georgia House Speaker David Ralston demanded that state Rep. Jason Spencer resign after he yelled racial slurs and exposed himself in an episode of Sacha Baron Cohen’s Showtime series that aired late Sunday. Spencer dropped his pants and repeatedly used the n-word in the episode of “Who Is America?” Spencer had earlier threatened legal action to prevent the network from airing footage of him. In a statement shortly after the episode aired, Ralston said Spencer’s actions and language in the video are “reprehensible.” “Representative Spencer has disgraced himself and should resign immediately,” said Ralston. “Georgia is better than this.” Other...

    When I heard that Sacha Baron Cohen was coming out with a new prank-interview show, I wondered the same thing you probably did: Won't his targets recognize him as Borat? It's only been 12 years since Cohen's priapic Kazakhstani character became an international celebrity. Nothing he's done since then has been nearly as successful*, so now he's back to his old tricks. But how can he pull off the same act, now that everybody knows who he is? Won't they take one look at him and say, "Hey, you're Borat"?The answer, as viewers of Who Is America? learned this...

    Oscar Wilde once quipped that “there is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.” Having generated a lot of chatter recently, Sacha Baron Cohen and Showtime may take The Importance of Being Earnest author’s words as some cold comfort today. They may have to. Because, for all the hoopla around the debut of Cohen’s Who Is America? series, the 10 PM satire offering attracted a pretty meager viewership on July 15, at least on the small screen. Just 327,000 sets of eyeballs tuned in to the premium cabler on...

    SNIP Palin appeared on ABC's “Good Morning America” on Friday to talk about the interview Baron Cohen staged for his new Showtime satirical series “Who is America?” The former governor of Alaska told host Robin Roberts that Baron Cohen showed her “propaganda” about sex changes and transgender people and claimed that Chelsea Clinton was the “recipient of a government-funded sex change.” “It got worse and worse and worse as the minutes went on in this bizarre, really embarrassing, humiliating interview,” Palin said. “It mocked middle class Americans, it mocked our values, it mocked the disabled.” Palin said she had had...

    Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin slammed what appeared to be a response from British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, who’s on the defensive after apparently posing as a disabled military veteran for a prank interview. “Another list of unfunny lies, this time typewritten for all to see; a pathetic attempt to punk not just my daughter and me again, but now the public,” Palin wrote on Facebook Thursday. “Thank God people are wise to Hollywood’s BS & said, ‘Enough.’” Palin was responding to a tweet sent from the Twitter account of “Billy Wayne Ruddick,” the fictional character Cohan plays in his...

    After a controversial bronze medal wrestling match in Rio, Mongolian coaches protested their disappointing result by stripping off their clothes. The 65 kilograms freestyle wrestling match between Mongolia's Mandakhnaran Ganzorig and Uzbekistan's Ikhtiyor Navruzov initially ended with a score of 7-6 in favor of Ganzorig on Sunday. Unfortunately, Mongolia ended up losing the hard-fought bronze medal after the decision was challenged by Navruzov, citing that the Mongolian athlete began celebrating with about 10 seconds left in the match rather than continuing the match with his opponent. Judges ended up ruling in favor of Uzbekistan, who took home the bronze instead....

    Two brothers in law who went on a sponsored walk wearing comedy mankinis had to be picked up by police - after they were pelted with stones and eggs by residents who told them 'this is a Muslim area' and demanded they leave. Steven Ellis, 41, and Jason Hendry, 22, wanted to walk eight miles from Solihull to Birmingham city centre wearing the outfit featured in 2006 film Borat to raise money for Birmingham Dogs' Home. But they ended up being escorted by officers after they were attacked as they passed through the Sparkbrook area of the city, claiming police...

Gold medalist Maria Dmitrienko never lets on that there's a problem and graciously poses for photos with the other medalists following the ceremony.

    On Monday afternoon the victim-rights lawyer Gloria Allred took the stage with a fourth woman named Sharon Bialek alleging that pizza mogul Herman Cain sexually harassed her ten years ago while he was CEO of the National Restaurant Association. She is reportedly the first such woman to publicly come forward. Allred’s long and impressive career has included representation of Scary Spice and various alleged Tiger Woods mistresses, and attacking the late Michael Jackson for child endangerment. Given the import of the moment, this seems like the right time for a roundup of some of her more important victories rooting out...

    After an exhaustive and controversial production proccess, Sacha Baron Cohen and UNIVERSAL are finally set to unleash BRUNO onto the multiplex -- and gay groups are reacting with "deeply mixed" emotions! "Some people in our community may like this movie, but many are not going to be OK with it," Rashad Robinson, senior director for the GAY AND LESBIAN ALLIANCE AGAINST DEFAMATION, tells the NEW YORK TIMES in a planned Sunday expose. "Sacha Baron Cohen's well-meaning attempt at satire is problematic in many places and outright offensive in others." Brad Luna, a spokesman for HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN, warns the movie...

    Eminem has come clean, saying that he knew what was in store when bare-buttocked comedian Sacha Baron Cohen crash-landed on him at the MTV Movie Awards television broadcast Sunday. Eminem stormed out of the awards ceremony after Baron Cohen, in the role of the main character from his new movie, "Bruno," landed on his lap after a flying mishap, leaving the audience wondering if the rapper really was furious or if it was a stunt. The Detroit rapper told website RapRadar.com that he knew full well what was about to happen and that it was all staged, right down to...

    Sacha Baron Cohen's latest film, Bruno, has succeeded in getting its age rating lowered in the US, despite initial objections from censors. The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) wanted to give the film the restrictive NC-17 rating, banning anyone aged under 17 from watching it. But producers re-edited the movie and resubmitted it, achieving an R rating. Early reviews of the film, based on Baron Cohen's gay fashion TV reporter character, have largely been positive. "I saw Bruno last night. It beyond delivered," wrote Hollywood director Ruben Fleischer on his blog. "After Borat, I thought there was no way...
