'The Dictator' Brings In Ben Kingsley To Join Baron Cohen

Sir Ben Kingsley
Sir Ben Kingsley and Sacha Baron Cohen? Sounds like a pretty strange Thespian match but reportedly they are set to star alongside each other in new comedy film The Dictator! Variety has reported that Kingsley will play a Middle Eastern character in the film.

As yet there has been no casting of a leading lady but three are under consideration in the forms of Kristen Wiig, Anna Faris and Gillian Jacobs.

The film follows a dictator who risks his own life to prevent the spread of democracy throughout his land. It
sounds like a rather strange story but seeing Kingsley in a comedic role could be fun. Larry Charles will be directing the flick which will see Sacha Baron Cohen take the role as the dictator. It is set for release in May 2012. Sounds like an interesting one but it will take some convincing to prove this one can work.

What are your opinions on the pairing of the two actors? Will it work?
