Sacha Baron Cohen as the 'Dictator' - FIRST LOOK!

Check out Sacha Baron Cohen in character for his upcoming film, The Dictator!

The comedy tells the story of “a Hussein-like dictator who gets secretly replaced by a lookalike goat herder and now must find new meaning in a life in New York City,” according to the Huffington Post.

Anna Faris co-stars as the “NYC organic store owner who opens his eyes to new possibilities.”

Larry Charles, who worked with Sacha on Borat and Bruno, directs the flick, which is set for a May 11, 2012 release and is inspired by the book “Zabibah and the King.”

On Wednesday (June 8), the cast and crew filmed some scenes in Astoria, Queens, NYC.
