Everyone knows Sacha Baron Cohen as the funny bloke who created Ali G, Borat, Bruno and other hilarious characters.
He has a good schtick going in Hollywood, however he's decided to switch it up a bit and is starring in a pretty heavy film about espionage, the Middle East and changing Israel forever.
The Spy is 'inspired by the real-life story of former notorious Mossad agent, Eli Cohen, who successfully goes undercover in Syria and ultimately changed the course of Israel's history', according to Netflix.
The streaming service has just dropped a trailer for the film and it seems people are loving it.
"Holy hell, what a reversal of acting. Definitely down to watch this," one person said.
"It's so strange see Sacha Baron doing drama, but I definitely going to watch it," wrote another.
A third added: "I love it when actors known for a certain genre take on a completely different one."
The Spy has been written and directed by Emmy-winner Gideon Raff and will drop on Netflix September 6.
