Sacha Baron Cohen
Cohen is most popular for his roles as Borat, but his other roles include Thénardier in 'Les Miserables' (2012), Bruno in 'Brüno' and Jean Girard in 'Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby' (2006). His most recent works include 'Who Is America?' (2018), 'The Spy' (2019) and 'The Trial of the Chicago 7' (2020). He also has an upcoming release titled 'Mandrake the Magician'. The hilarious actor was nominated for an Oscar for Best Writing, Adapted Screenplay for 'Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan' which he shared with Anthony Hines, Peter Baynham, Dan Mazer and Todd Phillips. He was also nominated for four Primetime Emmys - one in 2003 for Outstanding Writing for Non-Fiction Programming for 'Da Ali G Show' which he shared with co-writers, one in 2005 for Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Program for the same production which he shared with co-writers and two in 2019, for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series and Outstanding Directing for a Variety Series for 'Who is America?' which he also shared with his teammates.

The rest of the cast includes Ken Davitian, Mike Pence, and Rudolph W. Giuliani.
The film is directed by Jason Woliner, with Peter Baynham, Sacha Baron Cohen, Jena Friedman, Anthony Hines, Lee Kern, Dan Mazer, Erica Rivinoja, Dan Swimer, Nina Pedrad, and Nick Corirossi serving as writers. Baynham, Buddy Enright, Nicholas Hatton, Mazer, and Stuart Miller serve as executive producers.
It's safe to say that we still don't understand if the film is real or fiction as Borat continues to stun people with his outrageous comedy. While we would love to talk about the trailer, after watching it, you'd understand why we're speechless. Also, we have no idea how Mike Pence agreed to this.
