Sacha Baron Cohen’s New “Bruno” Film Has A Celeb Charity Twist




A few reviews of the new film Bruno, scheduled for release on July 10, have leaked out — and the news for Cohen fans is very postive. For those not in the know, Bruno is one of the characters Cohen created for his Channel 4 and HBO series, Da Ali G Show. As Wikipedia desribes, Bruno is a homosexual character claiming to be a reporter from an Austrian television station and interviews unsuspecting guests about topics such as fashion, entertainment, celebrities and homosexuality, with an emphasis on the latter as each interview progresses.” Needless to say, just like Borat, he’s absolutely hilarious. And he’s getting his own movie.


Anyways, according to the reviews, part of the plot involves Bruno drawing inspiration from people like George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Angelina Jolie to, as he says, find a “new shithole to save”..and…”Clooney has Darfur, I need to find my Darfive…” In his quest to become a big time celebrity, Bruno feels that the only way he can accomplish this is by giving back. He even flies to the Middle East to negotiate peace between Israel and Palestine by telling them “Why are you all so mad at Hamas, Pita bread is the real enemy, yes?”


The best part? Apparently there’s a giant charity song at the end of the movie featuring Bono, Coldplay, Elton John and Snoop Dogg. Any other movie and I’d call bullshit — but this is Sacha Baron Cohen, so expect it. Can’t wait.

Borat comedian Sacha Baron Cohen records Band Aid spoof single with Chris Martin




Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen has collaborated with Coldplay singer Chris Martin on a spoof single mocking 1980s charity effort Band Aid.


The Borat creator has recorded the track as part of his latest film featuring new camp Austrian alter-ego Bruno.


The single, called Dove of Peace, has been part-recorded in the legendary Abbey Road Studios and includes lyrics such as: "For people of Africa who live in hell/ They will never wear Chanel."


Other celebrities reported to be involved with the parody include Sting, the Village People, Madonna and Sir Elton John.


The forthcoming film, Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Male, tells the story of a gay fashionista with a quest to be 'the most famous Austrian since Hitler' and has already been given an adult rating in the United States.


An insider told The Mirror: "Bruno promises to be the funniest, most outrageous film of the year. In it, Sacha's character releases a brilliantly cheesy but subversive single, Dove Of Peace, which mocks the likes of Band Aid. It runs close to the bone but it's all very tongue-in-cheek, and he's pulled in some top stars.


"Madonna worked with him for her cover of American Pie and he's approached her to get involved. It'll be quite a coup if he does. If the film's a success, there is every chance the track will be released as a single."

Bono and Chris Martin Are in on Bruno's Joke




Sacha Baron Cohen has pulled in two high-profile conspirators with his prank-happy character, Bruno.


British newspaper the Mirror reports that U2 frontman Bono and Coldplay warbler/Gwyneth Paltrow beau Chris Martin have banded together with Sacha—in his guise as gay Austrian TV personality Bruno—to record a single.


The song, rumored to be titled "Dove of Peace," mocks the efforts of charitable music foundation Band Aid—which Bono participated in with the 1984 single "Do They Know It's Christmas?"


Martin has also developed a reputation as a musical do-gooder, particularly with his support of fair trade practices.


But that didn't stop the pair from playing along with Cohen's spoof. The song, which has already been partially recorded at legendary Abbey Road studios, bears the couplet, "For people of Africa who live in hell/ They will never wear Chanel."


"Chris Martin was in stitches throughout the recording and only just managed to get his lines out," says a spy at the session.


Other songsters rumored to be participating in the song include Madonna, Sting, Elton John and the Village People. The track will be included in the upcoming movie Bruno: 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.


Interstingly, Bono recently insulted Martin during a BBC radio interview, characterizing the Coldplay singer as a "w@nker."


Apparently, the power of satire is strong enough to bring anyone together.

^ Seriously, we made too big of a deal out of it. People say joke things like that about Bono all the time.


Oh, silly laughing Chris. This is actually the first part of this film that has me very, very interested.
