Sacha Baron Cohen To Play Saddam Hussein In Adapted Romance Novel

Jan 21, 2011

  • The softer side of despotism. He’s been an ignorant street thug, the Eastern European equivalent of a hillbilly and a flamboyant fashion designer. What’s next for Sacha Baron Cohen? A brutal Middle Eastern dictator who was hanged for his crimes. Cohen’s next cultural parody has been confirmed as The Dictator, in which he’ll be playing Saddam Hussein. There’s even a release date: May 11, 2012. The movie is based on – and no, I’m not making this up – a romance novel the was purportedly written by the former Iraqi leader, Zabibah and the Kings. Who else is speechless? --Adam Rosenberg
