After weeks of discussion about whether Sacha Baron Cohen could behave himself walking the Oscar red carpet as his character The Dictator, we saw how it worked out. Ryan Seacrest was doing his thing in his nice expensive tux on the red carpet of the Academy Awards when next up on his interview list was Cohen in his Dictator best. Check out the video to see what happened next.
Soon after the spilling of “Kim Jong-Il’s” ashes, Cohen was promptly removed by security. We’re wondering if the actor was even able to return to the Oscars. Also a question: Was Seacrest in on the joke? When Cohen dropped from the ceiling by a wire at the MTV VMAs a few years back as Bruno and landed half-naked on Eminem’s head, it came out later that the Detroit rapper was in on the gag.
Judging by Seacrest’s response, unless he’s a good actor -- which we doubt -- he was not in on this joke.
