Megan Fox Joins Sacha Baron Cohen's 'Dictator'

Sacha Baron Cohen rides a camel while filming his upcoming comedy, The Dictator, on Sunday (June 19) in New York City.

The 39-year-old funnyman takes on two roles – a goat herder and a deposed foreign ruler – in the film, which centers around “the heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed.”

Megan Fox will also be making a cameo in the film, along with John C. Reilly, THR reports.

Their roles are reportedly being kept under wraps but the two will join a cast that already includes Anna Faris and Ben Kingsley.

    Megan Fox’s people are in damage control mode to dispel the thought that after Speilberg had her fired she won’t be able to find work. A cameo is not really a role, but her people are trying to keep her above water.

  • Mean troop

    I think that they’ll be doing their own damage control soon. Using bullying to promote a movie is immature. They should take their own advice and be more professional.

  • Cool

    John C. is hilarious. He’s a good choice. Megan will be funny. She’s got a self deprecating sense of humor.

  • Glamazon

    Megan will add some beauty to this picture. Sasha looks terrible in that get up but that’s the point I guess. lol

  • tattle tales

    sounds cool. sashas movies are usually funny. pamela anderson was funny in his other movie. megan will be funny too.

  • http://j.com kå simply àmazing!

    Sasha is hilarious though so I hope Megan rocks it in the cameo!

  • beefy

    the funny part is she back working for Paramount, the studio that fired her….hmmmm

  • JJ

    @beefy: @beefy: She has nothing else going for her. Her fans are all ready clamoring over her STARRING in this picture.

  • @EB

    awesome link. thanks.

  • LadyB

    I don’t think this Sacha guy is funny. Sorry, I didn’t like Borat. As for Megan Fox, she knew all along that Spielberg was the one that fired her. Why didn’t she go apologize to him? This guy is the biggest guy in Hollywood and if she said something to upset him (which we all know was not spitefully said), she should have driven to his house and offered a friendly apology. I’m sure she feels bad about the whole thing.

  • Bee

    @beefy whats even funnier is she has experience with a dictator which ironically is what sasha plays and the title of the movie>BAY According to her he was a dictator which is how she got the role. I am sure she will be the sex symbol and nothing else which is ironic since Shia said she is uncomfortable with that role. I was excited to see the movie but she makes me not so excited

  • Andie

    Go MEGAN.

    And it seems like the TF3 people are the ones DESPERATE for attention since they are promoting this movie only based on MEGAN s DEPARTURE. Why dont they talk about THE MOVIE and not about her…hum….oh yeah, we know why…..because the press doesnt give a damn about this movie. Megan is more interesting.

    And about the idiots that still believe this spielberg story, she was at the set of TF3. Plus, the hitler comment was about two years ago. Wouldnt it make sense to fire her back then……and why bring it up right now…..because they know that even with her out of the movie, SHE is the talk of the movie, the press, since nobody is asking about the movie itself, only why megan fox left.

    Pathetic, BAY…..

  • ManDown

    i don’t think it would be a great movie ! it will only give another bad image on the arabs, it’s always the same in hollywood !! they always say arabs are terrorist, they’re bad people !!!
    what’s the point of such a movie : showing how bad are arabs that’s it and that’s really not ok ’cause it’s always the same story in hollywood

  • amz

    Megan Fox ??? from Steven Spielberg and M. Bay to making a CAMEO in Sasha Baron Cohen film?????????? AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
    Next time we’ll see her working at WALMART.
    Her career went down the toilet. TRAGIC. And it’s all her fault.

  • unknown

    So pathetic. I bet her body is the focus in all of her upcoming movies. She’s officially a hack. She’s the new jessica alba/biel that no one cares about except blogs and tabloids!!!
