It’s pretty wild to me that Cohen would be able to pull off the Borat character given that the original 2006 film — also, wow, how has it been 14 years? — grossed $128.5 million domestically and $132.9 million internationally. The movie has also been on TV regularly since its release. How does the jig not get exposed and shut down immediately?
