First Look: Sacha Baron Cohen as The Dictator

Paramount Pictures has released the first image of Sacha Baron Cohen as The Dictator, the actor’s third crude character spoof film following Bruno and Borat.

Larry Charles, who directed Cohen in both Bruno and Borat, will helm The Dictator as well. It is loosely based on Saddam Hussein’s best-selling novel Zabibah and The King, though Cohen will likely draw inspiration from many of the world’s most foremost dictators who have ruled nations over the past several decades.

The Dictator co-stars Anna Faris and Ben Kingsley, and will open in theaters everywhere on May 11, 2012.
