First Look At Sacha Baron Cohen As 'Grimsby'

While the Adam Sandler and Kevin James types of the world lazily riff on their personas each time out, there are few in the comedy world who commit so fully to their character creations than Sacha Baron Cohen. He thinks of every detail, backwards and forwards, and is determined to deliver something three dimensional each time out. And that's why we look forward to his big screen work each time out.

While the Adam Sandler and Kevin James types of the world lazily riff on their personas each time out, there are few in the comedy world who commit so fully to their character creations than Sacha Baron Cohen. He thinks of every detail, backwards and forwards, and is determined to deliver something three dimensional each time out. And that's why we look forward to his big screen work every single time.

And coming next summer is "Grimsby," an action/comedy vehicle, directed by Louis Leterrier ("Clash Of The Titans," "Now You See Me"). The first look is here, and once again, Cohen has transformed. This time around he's playing a dim soccer fan who gets tangled up with his long lost brother, who also happens to be a secret agent. Mark Strong, Annabelle Wallis, David Harewood, Ian McShane, Gabourey Sidibe, Johnny Vegas, Rebel Wilson and Isla Fisher star in this one, and possibly Eric Idle who posted this pic. "Grimsby" opens on July 31, 2015.
