Cohen In Murder Threat

SACHA BARON COHEN was left fearing for his life after a cage-fight mob threatened to kill him as he filmed his new movie BRUNO.
The British funnyman was shooting scenes while in character as the outrageous Austrian fashion journalist hosting a real cage fight in Arkansas.
The star was told he didn't have to worry about his safety, so he challenged the booing audience to a fight - but was confronted by a muscleman within seconds.
Cohen was scared for his life as the mob urged the fighter to "kill him", but he managed to escape through a secret door.
The actor says, "There were 2,000 drunk good old boys baying for blood. I was told not to worry, it would take someone two minutes to climb in the cage. The audience booed me and I challenged them to a fight, thinking I was safe. Then a 6 feet 8 inches steroid-ed guy catapulted over the fence in two seconds and stood in front of me as the crowd cheered, 'Kill him, kill him'."
