Borat 2 is due to go down in history as perhaps the most controversial flick of all time. While Sacha Baron Cohen currently battles with Rudy Giuliani over what really happened in the bedroom, the star of the show has also been speaking out about his dedicated time as the character.
16 years after the first film came out, Borat 2 sees Cohen taking on Republicans in 2020, amid the ongoing pandemic.
This forced the actor to deal with the ongoing lockdown procedures, as well as the tumultuous political climate in America.
With the 2020 election just around the corner, Cohen was keen to delve into the mindset of the average Donald Trump voter.
This situation led Borat to moving in with two Republicans, under the guise that he needed somewhere to stay.
Cohen spent five days with these men under lockdown from the virus – forcing him to stay in character 24 hours a day.
Throughout his time with the men he learned a lot about them, and their views as die-hard Republican voters.
According to an interview Cohen did with The New York Times, these two men were keen to tell Borat all about the Democrats, and those running against President Donald Trump.
They also explained a number of conspiracy theories regarding former Trump opposition Hillary Clinton.
Cohen added: “You can’t have a moment out of character.”
Cohen isn’t a stranger to being in danger, however, as revealed during interviews for his 2009 satire Bruno.
He explained that he once invited his wife, Isla Fisher, to watch him perform as Bruno – but has since vowed to never do it again.
He explained: “She once came on set just for fun. On set means coming to the minivan, which carried me around when we were shooting Brüno.
“And there ended up being a police chase. I was in a separate car and the police were trying to find me.”
Cohen added: “She found the whole thing so upsetting, and she never came back on set again.”
Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe To American Regime For Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation Of Kazakhstan – or Borat 2 – is available to stream on Amazon Prime Video now.
