We’ve got a first look today at how Sacha Baron Cohen will appear in the new Sony Pictures comedy Grimsby, and it comes from an unusual source. The one and only Eric Idle actually spotted Cohen on the set and tweeted out the below photo of them.
Also co-written by Cohen, the July 31, 2015 release co-stars Mark Strong, Annabelle Wallis, David Harewood, Ian McShane, Gabourey Sidibe, Johnny Vegas, Rebel Wilson and Isla Fisher.
Directed by Louis Leterrier, the film follows a secret agent who learns that he has a long-lost brother, a dimwitted soccer fan, with whom he must team up.
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
