CATEGORIES Movie NewsIt's certainly a headline day for Megan Fox. First came the buzz that she was fired from the third 'Transformers' film based on a "suggestion" by Steven Spielberg, who was upset about her well-publicized comment comparing director Michael Bay to Hitler (it didn't help that she wasn't very nice on the set). Now comes word that she'll be making a cameo -- along with
John C. Reilly -- in Sacha Baron Cohen's comedy 'The Dictator,' according to The Hollywood Reporter.
In the Larry Charles-directed comedy, a Middle Eastern dictator is secretly replaced by a goat-herder lookalike and flees to New York City to start a new life. Baron Cohen plays both parts. The log line for the Paramount film goes something like this: "The film tells the heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed. It is inspired by the best selling novel 'Zabibah and The King' by Saddam Hussein."
Anna Faris, Ben Kingsley and Jason Mantzoukas are also in the movie, set for a May 11, 2012 release.
