The 'Borat' actor additionally stopped by 'TODAY' show to promote the adult comedy film, jokingly threatening the safety of host Matt Lauer's family.
Getting closer to the U.S. release of "The Dictator", Sacha Baron Cohen introduced a brand new red band trailer for his latest adult comedy movie. In addition to presenting some familiar scenes that were featured in the previously released trailer, this new promo unveils more hilarious scenes, including the one that sees Baron Cohen's General Aladeen helping a woman who is in labor at a grocery.
Earlier on Monday, May 7, Baron Cohen stopped by "TODAY" show. Clad in full Aladeen costume, the British comedian jokingly threatened host Matt Lauer's family. "By the way, how are your family? How is your wife Annette? What is she doing now?" the actor asked Lauer. "She's probably watching this interview," the host responded before the eccentric thesp claimed, "Incorrect!", and pulled a swatch of hair from his pocket and said, "Is this her hair?"
Slated for a May 16 release in the United States, "The Dictator" has Baron Cohen starring as a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed. The film is reportedly inspired by the novel "Zabibah and the King" by the late Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.
Directed by Larry Charles, the upcoming comedy movie also stars Anna Faris, Ben Kingsley, John C. Reilly, Megan Fox and Bobby Lee.
