We got our first look at Sacha Baron Cohen in his next Bruno/Borat-style movie The Dictator two weeks ago, and now THR has word that both Megan Fox and John C. Reilly will be joining the cast. No further details on their roles were given, but they are said to be making cameo appearances so it’s probably best we stay in the dark.
In the film Sacha Baron Cohen plays a ruthless dictator who heads to the U.S. for a meeting at the United Nations and finds that his number two has replaced him with an unsuspecting sheepherder lookalike. As the dictator wanders the city, he meets the owner of an organic food store. She turns around his dictatorial thinking, and there’s a little romance in it as well.
Cohen has re-teamed with Borat and Bruno director Larry Charles, and will also be joined on-screen by Sir Ben Kingsley, Jason Mantzoukas, and Anna Faris.
