Sacha Baron Cohen Went Undercover At Mike Pence Rally In Fat Suit For New Borat Movie

Sacha Baron Cohen has revealed how he gatecrashed a Mike Pence rally while dressed in a fat suit for the next Borat movie.

The new installment of the film is out soon on Amazon Prime Video, but this time the Ali G actor had a more important mission than just making us laugh, saying he felt like he 'had to ring the alarm bell and say that democracy is in peril this year'.

Speaking to the New York Times, Cohen said he has had a 'long-standing distaste' for Trump - of course, he encountered him in 2003 when he was filming the Ali G film.

So it's not surprising he's now directing his efforts to poke fun at the Trump administration, in the lead up to next month's presidential election, leading him to a Mike Pence rally.

He said: "Bear in mind, I spent five hours in makeup that morning with the prosthetic team changing my face into Trump's face.

"This fat suit is huge. It's a 56-inch fat suit to turn my waist into Trump's because we had estimated that was the most realistic.

"Obviously, I'm wearing a fat suit. How do I get in and how do I get out?"

A security guard's wand went off at one stage, to which Baron Cohen improvised, claiming it was because of his defibrillator.

He added: "Then I ended up hiding in the bathroom, listening to conservative men go to the toilet for five hours until I broke into the room. We were surrounded by Secret Service and police and internal security."

At one point in the film, he can be seen holding a woman over his shoulder, who he says he has brought as a 'gift' from Kazakhstan.

News reports at the time said that it was a Trump impersonator - of course, it turned out to be Sacha.

The new Borat film was filmed partly through the pandemic. He said: "The hardest thing I had to do was, I lived in character for five days in this lockdown house.

"I was waking up, having breakfast, lunch, dinner, going to sleep as Borat when I lived in a house with these two conspiracy theorists. You can't have a moment out of character."

Speaking about his thoughts on Donald Trump, he said: "His brilliance was to commandeer the very term that was being used against him, 'fake news,' and use it against every journalist that had journalistic integrity."

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm will be available via Amazon on 23 October.
