Sacha Baron Cohen

Baron Cohen at the premiere of ''[[Hugo (film)|Hugo]]'' in 2011 Sacha Noam Baron Cohen (born 13 October 1971) is an English actor, comedian, writer and producer. He is known for his creation and portrayal of fictional satirical characters, including Ali G, Borat Sagdiyev, Brüno Gehard and Admiral General Aladeen. Baron Cohen adopts a variety of accents and guises for his characters. He interacts with unsuspecting subjects, who do not realise they have been set up for self-revealing ridicule. On these interactions, ''The Observer'' states, "his career has been built on winding people up, while keeping a deadpan face".

Baron Cohen is most known for his comedic performances in films such as ''Borat'' (2006), ''Bruno'' (2009), ''The Dictator'' (2012), and ''Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby'' (2006). He is also known for voicing King Julien XIII in the ''Madagascar'' film series (2005–2012). Cohen has also appeared in dramatic films such as Tim Burton's ''Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street'' (2007), Martin Scorsese's ''Hugo'' (2011), Tom Hooper's ''Les Misérables'' (2012) and Aaron Sorkin's ''The Trial of the Chicago 7'' (2020). He made a cameo as a BBC News Anchor in ''Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues'' (2013). In 2016, Baron Cohen appeared in the comedy film ''Grimsby'' and co-starred in the fantasy sequel ''Alice Through the Looking Glass''. Two years later, he created and starred in ''Who Is America?'' (2018) for Showtime, his first television project since ''Da Ali G Show'' (2000–2004), for which he was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Television Series Musical or Comedy. The following year, Baron Cohen portrayed Eli Cohen in the limited series ''The Spy'' for OCS and Netflix, for which he received a nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor - Miniseries or Television Film.

Baron Cohen was named Best Newcomer at the 1999 British Comedy Awards for ''The 11 O'Clock Show'', and since then, he has received two BAFTA Awards for ''Da Ali G Show'', several Emmy nominations, a nomination for an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay, and a Golden Globe for Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for his work in the feature film ''Borat''. After the release of ''Borat'', Baron Cohen said he would retire Borat and Ali G because the public had become too familiar with the characters. After the release of ''Brüno'', he said he would retire that character. At the 2012 British Comedy Awards, he received the Outstanding Achievement Award, accepting the award while reprising his Ali G character. In 2013, Baron Cohen received the BAFTA Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for Excellence in Comedy. In 2018, ''The Times'' named Baron Cohen among the 30 best living comedians. Provided by Wikipedia
