Sacha Baron Cohen's creations of Ali G, Borat and Bruno are instantly recognizable characters, but what is often taken for granted is how much their costuming is a big part of what makes them so memorable. Of course, Ali G likes to drape himself in colorful tracksuits and bling, while Borat prefers cheap suits and one piece swimsuits. As for Bruno, he's fashionable in a way that usually only works in magazines. For his latest character in "The Dictator" a new set photo reveals that Cohen hasn't given up the eye-catching carb just yet.

Sacha Baron Cohen's creations of Ali G, Borat and Bruno are instantly recognizable characters, but what is often taken for granted is how much their costuming is a big part of what makes them so memorable. Of course, Ali G likes to drape himself in colorful tracksuits and bling, while Borat prefers cheap suits and one piece swimsuits. As for Bruno, he's fashionable in a way that usually only works in magazines. For his latest character in "The Dictator" a new set photo reveals that Cohen hasn't given up the eye-catching carb just yet.

We know July 4th is still a few weeks away, but it looks like one of the two parts Cohen plays in the film is already prepped for the festivities. Co-starring Ben Kingsley, Jason Mantzoukas and Anna Faris the film is described as a cross between “Coming to America” and “Trading Places,” with Cohen playing both a goat herder and a deposed foreign dictator who gets lost in the United States. Kingsley will play a Middle Eastern character, with Mantzoukas slotted as a sidekick and Faris as the love interest and owner of an organic food store. And yes, the details are a bit all over the place since specifics are being kept under wraps.

Filming is already underway with a May 11, 2012 release date already scheduled. Check out full picture below. [via Movieweb]
