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, screenwriter, and film producer. He is known for creating and portraying many fictional satirical characters, including Ali G, Borat Sagdiyev, Brüno, Admiral General Aladeen, Erran Morad, and multiple others. Like his idol Peter Sellers, he adopts a variety of accents and guises for his characters and rarely appears out of character.

In most of his routines, Baron Cohen's characters interact with unsuspecting people, documentary style, who do not realise they are being set up for comic situations and self-revealing ridicule. His other work includes voicing King Julien XIII in the ''Madagascar'' film series (2005–2012) and appearing in ''Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby'' (2006), ''Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street'' (2007), ''Hugo'' (2011) and ''Les Misérables'' (2012). He made a cameo as a BBC News Anchor in ''Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues'' (2013). In 2016, he played an English football hooligan brother of an MI6 spy in the comedy film ''Grimsby'', and co-starred as Time in the fantasy sequel ''Alice Through the Looking Glass''. In 2018, Baron Cohen created and starred in ''Who Is America?'' for Showtime, his first television project since ''Da Ali G Show'', for which he was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Television Series Musical or Comedy.

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 Best Actor for his work in the feature film ''Borat''. After the release of ''Borat'', Baron Cohen stated that because the public had become too familiar with the characters, he would retire Borat and Ali G. Similarly, after the release of ''Brüno'', Baron Cohen stated he would also retire the title character. At the 2012 British Comedy Awards, he received the Outstanding Achievement Award, accepting the award while reprising his Ali G character. In 2013, he received the BAFTA Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for Excellence in Comedy. Provided by Wikipedia
