Sacha Baron Cohen Dumps Kim Jong Il's 'Ashes' On Ryan Seacrest

Sacha Baron Cohen hits the red carpet as his character from The Dictator at the 2012 Oscars held at the Hollywood & Highland Center on Sunday (February 26) in Hollywood.

The 40-year-old actor carried around an urn of Kim Jong Il‘s “ashes” on the red carpet – and during an interview, dumped the remnants from the container on Ryan Seacrest‘s head!

Earlier in the week, there was some controversy surrounding Sacha‘s attendance on the red carpet. It was originally rumored that Sacha would be banned from the festivities, but the Academy finally allowed him to walk as The Dictator from his upcoming film of the same name.

Billy Crystal hosts the 2012 Oscars live TONIGHT at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT on ABC!

    It’s all about publicity. They’ll claim they wanted him to leave and get off the red carpet, but seriously, who let him in?!

  • Asha

    Poor Ryan. I would have been pissed if I was him. It is one thing to show up as a crazy character but it’s completely rude to ruin someones tux to get publicity.

  • sami

    that was horrible! poor Ryan. Sasha is such an a@#h%le!
    I can’t believe he did that- what is he trying to prove? Ryan is working, being filmed live- and wearing a nice tux- I hope they kick sasha out for that. they didn’t even want him there- he is not funny he is gross.

  • wake up

    People value this as a sacred event too much…. it’s just an award show… completely worthless and fake

  • Jasmine

    How disgustingly pathetic. This infant needs to GROW UP. How tacky can he be??

  • yay

    I don’t know why he fought so hard for this, it’s not even funny.

  • jasper

  • sophia

    Hahahaha!!! That’s what Ryan gets! He’s such a D-bag.

  • George

    @other: Oh, lighten up! It a stupid Hollywood award show!
    All these reporters need to stop taking themselves so seriously, Sacha was a good wake up call to all of them! Bravo to him!!

  • Amy

    Ha! I love it! That was awesome!!

  • Randi

    LMAO! This just made my night! Too funny

  • Alice

    Omg! That was great
    Ryan was actually speechless!!!

  • Jake

    The fact that this happened to Ryan specifically is halarious!!
    I’m sure He didn’t mind getting ash on the tux he wore for free
    And name dropped all night. Sacha is my hero for this!

  • Lake

    It wasn’t EXCACTLY on Ryans head, but close enough! Hahaha!
    That was classic

  • ion

    Why does this racist get so much attention?

  • Lalalove

    LMAOOOOOO this isn’t about Sacha being funny or not. It’s about him making me laugh at that douchee Ryan.

  • Becky

    Omg! I love that he did that to Ryan! So good!

  • Sean

    Awwwe. Poor Ryan. His 5k designer tux is ruined

  • Anika

    It was so annoying to see how Ryan reacted – my god, get yourself together, someone poured flour or something over your tux, you are not going to die! Some people take themselves way to serious

  • MeMyself&I

    I can’t stand Sacha Baron Cohen. His comedy always comes at the expense of others and it’s not even that funny. He should never have been allowed on the red carpet.
    I watched Borat years ago and was disgusted at what he did to people for cheap laughs. Innocent bystanders, people not even in the industry.
    I have not watched anything of his since.
    His wife is beautiful but I question her taste in men. One day she will regret the father she chose for her children.

  • MeMyself&I

    @Anika: Anika, this is the most important presenting job of the year. How would you like it if someone poured a bag of flour on you on an important occasion in which you had to look your best?
    I’m not a fan of Ryan Seacrest but that was just low. Sacha Baron just dragged him into his little stunt whether he wanted to be involved or not.

  • Diggy

    @MeMyself&I: Ryan is just a reporter, He isn’t important to the Oscars (He may think he is, but hes not) Ryan’s huge ego leads him to believe he is a celebrity but fact is he isn’t even aloud into the events he reports for, cause he is JUST a reporter!
    Sacha was in an Oscar nominated movie!
    Fact is, It WAS funny! And nobody really even cared about Ryan! lol!

    I’d send him the bill for the cleaning for my suit, that’s just tacky. I didn’t find it funny at all.
