Sacha Baron Cohen plays a flamboyantly gay Austrian fashion reporter in the new film Bruno.

With his new movie, Bruno, Sacha Baron Cohen has once again succeeded in making people laugh — and think.

Best-known for the faux documentary Borat, in which he played a bumbling reporter from Kazakhstan, Cohen plays a flamboyantly gay Austrian fashion reporter in his new film Bruno.

The characters of both Bruno and Borat originated on Cohen's cable television show Da Ali G Show.

This interview was originally broadcast Jan. 4, 2007.
