Three Up for Starring Opposite Sacha Baron Cohen Imitating Foreign Accent Again
As Sacha Baron Cohen and director Larry Charles prepare their latest, The Dictator, the time has come to finally put a female presence in a Cohen-doing-a-voice movie, and it's reportedly down to three likely options. The Hollywood Reporter says Kristen Wiig, Anna Faris, and Community's Gillian Jacobs are frontrunners for the role, a part that will place them opposite either Cohen's goat herder character or his disposed title character. Comedian Jason Mantzoukas, meanwhile, is in talks to play Cohen's Middle Eastern sidekick--like Batman had, but less likely to throw nutcases into such a tizzy. Hopefully.
