Sacha Baron Cohen Shows Off His Latest Look For New Movie Grimsby


Sacha Baron Cohen appears to be channeling 80s football hooligans and Liam Gallagher for his latest film, ‘Grimsby’.

Filming in what looks distinctly like Greenwich, south east London, the ‘Borat’ star bumped into Eric Idle, who’s appearing in the Monty Python live show at the O2.

Idle, who lives near Baron Cohen in Los Angeles, promptly tweeted the picture of the pair together.

"So who did I bump into on my walk today but my LA neighbour? He's here filming. I love coincidence," said Idle.

Though the barnet is arguably unforgivable, it’s among the less humiliating transformations the shameless comedian has had to undergo.


Who could forget Borat’s mankini, for example, or for that matter, any of the outfits he wore as Austrian fashionista Brüno Gehard?


This latest movie finds him starring alongside Mark Strong, playing a black ops spy for the government, who has to go on the run with his idiotic estranged brother (Cohen), who happens to be a boozed-up football hooligan.


Cohen’s recently also been spotted shooting scenes in Grimsby, and visiting Hull and Newcastle for inspiration.

It also stars Baron Cohen’s wife Isla Fisher, Rebel Wilson, Ian McShane, David Harewood, ‘Precious’ star Gabourey Sidibe and Johnny Vegas.

Directed by Louis Leterrier, who mad ‘Now You See Me’ and ‘Clash of the Titans’, it’s due out in the summer of 2015.
