Sacha Baron Cohen is Part-Iranian
Borat/Bruno/Cohen is part-Iranian!
Sacha's mother is Israeli-Iranian (of Persian ethnic ancestry, born in Israel), and his father is Welsh. I always thought Sacha Baron Cohen looked Iranian, but I hadn't checked his background until now.
Anyway, I haven't seen the Bruno movie, and I probably won't (I've heard it's really tasteless humor). I miss Ali G, though. I loved his interview with Steve Nash, where Ali G. claimed Canadians don't speak English and instead speak a strange language called "Canada." See clip above, or just do a search for, "I can't understand you, you're speaking in Canada."
