First Look at Sacha Baron Cohen in Saddam Hussein-Like 'Dictator' Costume
Movie

Take a look at Cohen donning a Saddam Hussein-inspired outfit, with facial hair and a pair of glasses adorning his face, for the comedy drama.

AceShowbiz - Paramount has debuted the first official photo of %cSacha Baron Cohen% from "The Dictator". The image, courtesy of The Huffington Post, features the 39-year-old comedian in Saddam Hussein-inspired costume complete with facial hair and a pair of glasses adorning his face.

Loosely based on "Zabibah and the King" novel written by Hussein himself, the film "tells the heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed." The problem is, this "goat herder" has to find a new meaning in life in America.

In addition to Cohen, the comedy drama also has %cBen Kingsley% and %cJason Mantzoukas% taking the supporting roles. Larry Charles, in the meantime, serves behind the lens for the movie which is slated for May 11, 2012 release across the United States.
