The Dictator

This weekend everyone will be talking about The Avengers (read Jeremy's review here) assembling in New York City to take on some sort of alien threat hellbent on taking over the world for the mischievous Loki. But in a couple of weeks on May 16th, The Big Apple will have a new visitor as Admiral General Aladeen (Sacha Baron Cohen), leader of the Republic of Wadiya heads there in The Dictator. But leading up to the visit, Aladeen is making some important press rounds, including a chat with TV and journalism legend Larry King. From his mourning of the death of fellow tyrant Kim Jong Il and more, it's a fun one. Watch!

Here's the Larry King interview with Admiral General Aladeen to promote The Dictator via JoBlo:

And there goes the beard! The Dictator is again being helmed Larry Charles, director of Borat and Bruno, as well as Religulous and episodes of "Curb Your Enthusiasm". The cast for The Dictator also includes Anna Faris, Ben Kingsley, John C. Reilly, even B.J. Novak and Aasif Mandvi, and now we finally get to see who a few of their characters actually are. Apparently, Saddam Hussein's best-selling novel Zabibah and the King "inspired" this story about a dictator who risks his life to ensure that democracy will never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed. Paramount will be bringing Baron Cohen's The Dictator to theaters everywhere starting May 16th this summer. For more, visit: RepublicofWadiya.com. Good stuff?
