Sacha Baron Cohen is set to return to the big screen next year in the comedy Grimsby, which finds this chameleon of comedy portraying a soccer hooligan who gets mixed up with his secret agent brother. Leave it to iconic funny man Eric Idle to share the first photo of the Borat star in costume, on his way to the set. The two British comedians are neighbors, but its unclear if Eric Idle has a role in the movie. Take a look.
So who did I bump into on my walk today but my LA neighbour? He's here filming. I love coincidence. pic.twitter.com/JHp2lbzptj— Eric Idle (@EricIdle) July 3, 2014
While the bigger story is being kept under wraps, the main plot of Grimsby follows Mark Strong as a tough, serious British secret agent (think 007) who discovers he has a long lost brother, who just happens to be a loutish, loud, drunk, dimwitted and obsessive soccer hooligan. The two must team up for a new case.
