Depp Hails Baron Cohen As Next Sellers
JOHNNY DEPP has likened British funnyman SACHA BARON COHEN to legendary comedian PETER SELLERS. The Hollywood actor stars in new movie SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET alongside Baron Cohen and admits he was impressed by the Borat star. He says, "He (Baron Cohen) was not what I expected. He's incredibly nice. A real gentleman, kind of elegant. He's kind of today's equivalent of Peter Sellers." Sellers - who died in 1980 - was famed for his roles in 1964's Dr Strangelove and as Inspector Clouseau in The Pink Panther films.
