    Baron Cohen’s character Bruno causes security scare at Wichita Airport

    WENN is reporting that security at a Wichita, Kansas airport was put on “red alert” when a “European man” was “[stripped] down to tight shorts and [danced] in the lobby of Wichita Airport.”
    Baron Cohen is filming a movie as his flaming Austrian TV personality Bruno, and the Wichita locals didn’t take kindly to his half-dressed invasion of the airport. They also had no idea who he is. I found the original story about this on Kansas.com, and there’s no mention of Baron Cohen or Bruno, so it’s safe to say that more people are fooled by this character than his better-known Kazakh incarnation, Borat:
    Officials at the Wichita Mid-Continent Airport are rewriting their policy on commercial filming inside the terminal after a film crew stripped down and started dancing at the airport.
    The crew had permission from the airport to film a scene on March 18 based on a “European man” visiting America.
    But security workers became concerned when they began dancing in tight short shorts, kissing and fighting in the lobby.
    Security couldn’t find anything illegal about the performance, but asked the crew to leave.
    Brad Christopher, assistant director of airport operations, says it won’t be as easy to film at the airport in the future.
    [From Kansas.com]
    I love how this is reported completely straight-faced, and they have no idea that it was comic Baron Cohen, calling him a “European man.”
    At least one celebrity was said to be fooled by Bruno for the upcoming film. Mike Walker reports in the current issue of the National Enquirer that Ben called up comedian Sarah Silverman and told her that he did an interview with an “openly gay European fashion journalist” who asked him inappropriate questions like “how do you like (n-words)?” Sarah clued him in that it was Sacha Baron Cohen in his Bruno character. I’m not so quick to believe that Affleck wasn’t in on it, but maybe we’ll see how good an actor he is once the movie comes out.

    The Bruno movie is gonna be a riot, sounds even better than Borat. Jay Roach:"Suspense, anxiety and danger are actually underestimated aspects of comedy, and Sacha's throwing them all in. On top of the comedic power of the performance, I enjoy the sense that he is wandering amongst us, holding a mirror up to these subtle attitudes deeply cloaked nowadays in terms of people's prejudices and hypocrisies. Without being particularly preachy, he's able to expose some very problematic attitudes in our culture. To have a guy make you laugh that hard but then you walk out of the theater arguing about what the message is, I think that's pretty cool." INDUSTRY BUZZ

    Production Crew Targets Church; Airport Save Email Print Posted: 9:44 PM Mar 18, 2008

    Several locations in Kansas were targeted last week by a film crew claiming to be making a film about culture in America. Their actions have people across the state wondering whether they've been part of a "Borat"-like prank.
    Pastor Greg Smith of Central Community Church says they were contacted by the film crew and were told they were working on a film to be shown in Europe. Smith agreed to let them film the Easter play being performed at the church.
    However, at some point, fellow Pastor Clint Dunn knew something was not right. In security camera footage from the church, you can see crew members making preparations to cover the security cameras before attempting to pull off their prank.
    Smith says one of the crew members was dressed "biblically" and covered with chains. He believes they were going to disrupt the play going on inside the church at the time.
    Dunn quickly took action to prevent that from happening. He locked the doors and abruptly told the audience good-bye.
    The film crew also visited Mid-Continent Airport. Officials there are reviewing its media policies after the so-called German documentary film crew made a scene inside the main terminal on Friday.
    "We were lied to," says Assistant Airport Director Brad Christopher.
    "We were duped."
    Authorities say the film crew was not who they said they were. Last month, the group contacted Wichita airport officials about shooting part of their documentary on American culture at Mid-Continent. They arrived Friday and were shown around. Airport employees say they seemed professional.
    That is, until the cameras came on and the clothes came off.
    Witnesses say it almost looked like pornography. In the middle of the terminal, the film crew began stripping down. They were escorted out of the airport by police, and told to leave.
    Wichita Police, along with the Attorney General, are investigating the prank. Airport officials say it wasn't necessarily illegal, but it was unethical and highly inappropriate for a public location where security is paramount.
    The film crew says it works for Longman Parke Productions of Los Angeles. LP Productions says it has no crews in Wichita.
    The crew also made its way to Topeka and contacted another church as well as our sister station, WIBW. One of the reporters there became suspicious after a member of the crew asked if she had seen the movie "Borat."
    "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan" is a 2006 film staring comedian Sacha Baron Cohen who plays a fake journalist learning more about American culture, embarassing himself for attention. A sequel is said to be in the works, leaving some to wonder if Wichita may make the big screen in coming months. Production Crew Targets Church; Airport

    I love it where Bruno is participating with the Alabama cheerleaders on the field and the booze soaked rednecks in the front rows are going nuts flipping him the bird.

    OMG, I loved the episode of his show where Bruno was square dancing (I think) with hillbillies, and he kept hitting on this one old man.

    It was hilarious, and I think this movie's going to be funnier than Borat.
