Sacha Baron Cohen's Brüno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Males Visibly Uncomfortable in the Presence of a Gay Foreigner in a Mesh T-Shirt may end up being brilliant:
Mike Walker of the National Enquirer reported the following story on the Howard Stern Show on Thursday: Ben Affleck called comedian friend Sarah Silverman after completing a sit-down interview about his "I'm f*cking Jimmy Kimmel" song with a person he was told was a "very famous openly gay fashion journalist". Ben called the interview "the weirdest sit-down he has ever had with a reporter" explaining that the interviewer's (whom he referred to as an "idiot") first question was "How Do You Like Nig*ers?" After a stunned silence, Silverman asked Affleck "Was this guy's name Bruno?" Then and only then did Affleck actually realize that the whole thing was a gag.
The movie is expected to hit theaters in October 2008.
