Seriously? Sacha Baron Cohen Drops Out Of Freddie Mercury Bio Film!

When it was announced that Sacha Baron Cohen was going to play Queen front-man Freddie Mercury, I was intrigued. Sacha has dropped out of the movie and it kinda sucks!

Deadline.com broke the story saying that Cohen was dropping out due to creative differences.

The band wanted a PG version of the movie and Cohen wanted it to be a hard-hitting piece, especially covering his death from AIDS.

Who will replace Cohen in this film?  An unknown?

As for things being a little more true to life when it comes to music film biographies, "Ray" about Ray Charles was not PG. It was PG-13. There was no nudity and I have a feeling that Cohen wanted to go all out and put it out there how Mercury really was.  He wanted it to be true and not downplayed.-DocFB

Diagnosis:  Really not sure who will play Mercury now.  If anyone suggests Adam Lambert, I will not talk to you.  Lambert is great playing with Queen but he is not Freddy and should not play him.

Video: Sacha Baron Cohen Versus Ryan Seacrest Goes To Ashes


Sacha Baron Cohen was allowed on The Oscar Red Carpet as "The Dictator" Admiral Aladeen, his latest movie character, and was being interviewed by Ryan Seacrest when things got ashy.

The Dictator was carrying around the ashes of Kim Jong II, the former North Korea dictator that died late last year.

Ryan seemed in on things as they talked about socks from K-Mart but as they talked about the urn and spilling it over Halle Berry's chest, it was spilled over Ryan and his tuxedo.

Ryan didnt' seem so pleased when his co-hosts deemed him to be lucky to be chosen by Cohen for the prank.

Ryan had this to saw on Twitter shortly after: My mom always told me to pack two jackets for red carpets, always wondered why. Now I know.

Check out the live TV moment above.-DocFB

Sacha Baron Cohen Oscar Skit Gets Cut; Cameron Says “Do It!”

So it seems a skit at the Oscars which was to feature Sacha Baron Cohen and Ben Stiller where they poke fun at Avatar is not going to happen.

This because the Academy does not want to upset James Cameron. 

When asked about the skit last night, James Cameron said to go ahead and do the skit and he was not aware it had been cut. 

One has to wonder if the Academy will change it's mind and let the skit stay now.

What do you think of the Academy even cancelling the skit in the first place?-Dr.FB

Bruno Targets Salma Hayek: NO NO NO!

Bruno’s at it again. This time the Austrian fashionista targets the voluptuous Ms. Salma Hayek. While going to the spa for a quick wax job he makes a few jokes at the expense of Ms. Hayek. Bruno says his first choice spa was the place where the sultry Mexicana “gets her hairy ass done.” He then makes a joke about the spa workers making a coat of her discarded body hair.

WTF?

Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest movie and HUGE $$ maker BOMB?, Bruno, had been riddled with controversy, from lawsuits to talk of Cohen being homophobic and making fun of gay people. Some loved the movie, while other's found it very offensive and couldn't stomach ever watching it again.

Sacha shouldn't fu** with Salma, I have a feeling she would cut his ba**s off and hand them to him with the sexiest most erotic smile on her face! Watch out Bruno!

Bruno Penetrates The Box Office Top Spot

Bruno took the top spot at the box office, pulling in just over $30 million.  He ended up on top of Ice Age 2 and Transformers 2.

Sacha Baron Cohen's movie made over $14 Million on Friday and declined Saturday and Sunday.  In fact, it only beat Ice Age 2 by $2 million.  It does not look likely right now that Bruno will match Borat's $100+ million at the box office.

My highlight of seeing the movie? Seeing the guy from Sixteen Candles who says "What's Happening, Hot Stuff" make his way by me while I was in line.-Dr.FB

Bruno Gets Into Hot Water With High School Football Team

The Los Angeles Unified School District is peeved at Sacha Baron Cohen's "Bruno" character for shots it took with Birmingham High School Football team.  A whole lot of tackling was going on.

The coach of the team and the principal of the school are in hot water with the L.A.U.S.D. where a lead official said this: "I don't believe that there is a place on any high school in America, including Los Angeles, for photos such as these."

He says those that think it is an overreaction don't have kids on campus.  Well, I don't have kids on campus and I do think it is an overreaction. These were not scandalous photos.  They were printed in a magazine and I am sure the kids had no problem posing for photos with the guy who played "Borat". 

It could effect a promotion for the school which goes to vote today.  Get over it and concentrate on academics instead jackass.-Dr.FB
