Sacha Baron Cohen

Spills Ashes All Over

Ryan Seacrest

2/26/2012 5:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Sacha Baron Cohen Spills Ashes All Over Ryan Seacrest
Sacha Baron Cohen took shameless promotion to a whole other level on the red carpet of the Oscars tonight -- not only did he show up dressed as his character from the upcoming movie "The Dictator" ... but he spilled an urn filled with fake ashes of Kim Jong Il all over Ryan Seacrest on live television.

Props to Seacrest though ... as he always does, Ryan took the whole thing in stride.

Haha Kim Jong Il's ashes! Sacha clever and funny, fortunately the Academy was wise enough to let his act proceed and liven up their staid, self-indulgent cheese festival.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned this yet, but I think the genius of this stunt is Sacha still managed to get in his punchline before being swept away by security... "When someone asks you what you're wearing you can say Kim Jong Il."

Sacha Baron Cohen is so not funny. If you have to dress in every character to promote every movie you make then you know you are not talented and have to rely on gimmick to get people to see your films. Ryan handled this really well. Does anyone think it was staged at all? It seems not too long after it happened, they stopped the red carpet interviews and just stuck with Giuliani and Kelly in the studio just looking at pictures of the fashion. I just hate SBC. I want to smack him.

What really needed to happen was for Ryan to knock his hat and sunglasses off and then rip off his beard. Now that would have been good entertainment!

SBC has never been funny and now he's just proven to the world that he's also a tool. That was uncalled for, mean and unfunny.

Yep E!'s ratings have been LOW and SBC needed publicity for his new movie. I think Ryan (the idiot) knew it was coming. He still acted like a cry baby though.
