Jacknuhn! The Supreme Leader, All Triumphant General and Chief Opthamologist of People's Republic of Wadiya's Admiral General Shabazz Aladeen (Sacha Baron Cohen) arrived on U.S. shores this weekend to drop by Weekend Update on "Saturday Night Live" with host Seth Meyers to discuss his upcoming film, "The Dictator" (a follow-up to his earlier films like "Planet Of The Rapes" and "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn's Legs").

One of Admiral General Aladeen's captors on the program was none other than filmmaker Martin Scorsese. " 'The Dictator' is the best film I have seen in the last 10 years," Scorsese said. Further prodded by Aladeen, the filmmaker responded, "It was good," before adding, after various electric shocks, "It was great. It was better than 'Raging Bull.' "

"You think this is torture?" Aladeen queried Scorsese. "I had to sit through 'The Aviator.' " Zing! "The Dictator" opens May 16th. Watch the segment below followed by the recently unveiled red-band trailer.
