Baron Cohen Goes Back To Pranks

SACHA BARON COHEN has claimed his first victim as part of his new prankster movie - setting up an Israeli analyst for an outrageous interview about the Middle East conflict.
Cohen famously lured unwitting members of the public into appearing in his hit 2006 comedy Borat: Cultural Learnings Of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation Of Kazakhstan.
Now the British comic is filming a follow-up - Brüno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Males Visibly Uncomfortable in the Presence of a Gay Foreigner in a Mesh T-Shirt.
The movie will feature another of Cohen's creations, Bruno, an Austrian fashion journalist, and Israeli expert Yossi Alpher admits he has already been targeted by the funnyman and his undercover movie crew.
Alpher was invited to be interviewed about the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but instead found himself being asked ludicrous questions confusing Gaza's ruling Hammas group to savory starter hummus - and comparing the political situation in the region to Brad Pitt's love life.
He says, "One of us mentioned Hammas, and the exchange that ensued went something like this: 'Vait, vait. Vat's zee connection between a political movement and food. Vy hummus?'
"'Hamas,' we explained, 'is a Palestinian Islamist political movement. Hummus is a food.' Then, the interviewer declared, 'Your conflict is not so bad. Jennifer-Angelina is worse.'"
