Sacha Baron Cohen brings back Borat to promote new Sacha Baron Cohen movie, “The Brothers Grimsby,” on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Things I didn’t think I would see after 10 years. My wife. Excuse me: “My wife!” Sacha Baron Cohen resurrected his popular Borat character to make a surprise appearance on Wednesday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, only so he could introduce Cohen’s next movie, a spy parody called The Brothers Grimsby. The film, out March 2016, co-stars Cohen and Mark Strong (Kingsmen: The Secret Service; Low Winter Sun) as brothers who get separated at an early age. Strong grows up to become an international hit man. Cohen’s character? Not so much, of anything, really. Hilarity ensues when the brothers are reunited in the middle of a planned hit.

Cohen, as Borat, also joked to Kimmel that “Donald Trump” was merely Cohen’s latest character prank on the world. If only that were true.

Roll the clip!
