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.
