British funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen is set to rock out in a new comedy about a Hasidic Jew who becomes an unlikely music star.

The comic, whose TV alter-egos include ALI G and Borat SAGDIYEV, will play CURLY OXIDE in a new film written by SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE star Tina Fey.

In the movie, Baron Cohen's character hooks up with a grizzled rocker, called VIC THRILL, and forms a cult rock act. The film is based on a real story about real rock characters called Curly Oxide and Vic Thrill.
