Ali G, Borat, R.I.P.
Sacha Baron Cohen told The Daily Telegraph today that he's retiring two of the characters he created for "Da Ali G Show" - the clueless Kazakh journalist Borat, and Ali G, the rapper from Staines. Both characters had been the subject of feature length films: "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan" and the much weaker, scripted "Ali G Indahouse: The Movie".
A film based on the third character from the series is in production now, with a working title of "Brüno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Males Visibly Uncomfortable in the Presence of a Gay Foreigner in a Mesh T-Shirt."
