1 Fact: 1 billion people do not have clean drinking water. Where: Africa and India are most affected.

The threat: More people are lost in the world through this situation than war.

The solution: We can make a difference through UNICEF Tap Project. If you want to, please do.

True fact 2: For as little as $10, one person can have clean drinking water for a lifetime.

That’s like a beer at a Hollywood club with the tip. Amazing aye! Act. Bump this post on too. Let’s flow. :)

Who didn’t love Sascha Cohen as Borat. Or when he brought to life Bruno we all thought that Cohen was the star template for early Lady Gaga, because he gave her something to copy, long before she ever was mega famous. There was really no difference between what Gaga and Sacha both were doing. Playing black people? Oh wait! that was Beyonce and Jay-Z, that same year. 

My point is, while critics lambast Lady Gaga for following Madonna‘s star template a bit too much, I say what about her Bruno trainer pop star wheels as well? Baron Cohen never got enough credit for that. And if Baron Cohen ever played Lady Gaga - you know that would be the end of her, so it’s kind he wants to play Freddie. He supports America’s younger generation. That’s too awesomery to see him operate.

Bad jokes aside, and on a serious note the post reports that. “Sacha Baron Cohen has been tapped to play Freddie Mercury in a biopic based on the Queen frontman who died of AIDS in 1991.

The shock-comic certainly bears a physical resemblance to Mercury, a fact that Entertainment Weekly also mentions. I also must note that Cohen’s got the chest hair for the part as well.” But it all rests on whether Cohen will sing Freddie’s songs himself, or lip sync to Freddie’s tracks. Maybe he can do a Britney–oh, that’s exactly what he’ll do. Studio tracks, with a lip sync for the film of himself.

Anyway, here’s a video clip of Sacha singing the Kazakhstan national anthem and a picture of Sam Elliott because Baron Cohen and Mercury look like the same person, but clearly Sam looks like, well–Sam Elliott. The same as he always has been, so let’s go with that today as no one else has in blog land. Enjoy Sacha’s musical and performance artist? talent and humor, below.

When the Haka and poi meets Michael Jackson: Taika Waititi is an Oscar nominated Maori filmmaker from New Zealand, whom Cliff Curtis of The Last Airbender produced and introduced to Hollywood to become a cinematic storyteller of significance in the future.

Taika started out as a talented playwright and comedic actor in Wellywood, home town of Sir Peter Jackson–and when I saw a live performance of Taika in the play he wrote called The Adventures of Maui I have never laughed so much at a play in my life. He’s one funny brotha. Ridiculous facial expressions, that could only belong to a Maori.

Taika has also just produced a video for the Patea Maori Club‘s 25th Anniversary of their #1 pop hit, Poi E, a song which also features in the award winning (Berlin Germany) film–Boy (Cliff Curtis produced also with Ainsley Gardiner).   Read the rest of this entry »

Good news for the American box office. Men In Black 3 is now in the works. According to , Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith are going to strike up their winning partnership again, and… Sacha Baron Cohen is tagged to make an appearance to in the hit threequel. Smart box office move for Hollywood–as this town doesn’t run on pirated dvds of movies or love of fresh air either… it takes smart and strategic box office hits to keep LA going.

And although I thought I’d already seen it when Beyonce performed her version of Men In Black in her America’s Sweetheart role in Europe, this is going to be a tres exciting film.

Here’s Will Smith popping his moves and his music for ya.

Variety is reporting that Sacha Baron Cohen has been added to the list of Oscars presenters in 2010. It appears that the Oscars producers want comedy, comedy, comedy this year to ensure Oscars rates well.

Really, an Oscars presenters spot should be going to the lads of The Hangover which did exceptionally well at the box office last year, however Sacha is an auteur of films about…. well himself, so he wins out over the Hangover lads humor, in the Oscars presenters race. And besides, this is a Jewish town. Sacha Baron Cohen is the hot ticket. Congrats Borat/ Ali G on one of the top box seat spots of Hollywood’s most prestigious night.

I’m sure Sacha will bring on the laugh-out-louds and be good for ratings.
