“Bruno” Crashes Prop. 8 Rally

Sacha Baron Cohen, the genius behind Borat, brings his newest character to L.A.

Sacha Baron Cohen went undercover as his alter ego Bruno today, crashing a rally in support of a ballot measure that would ban gay marriage in California.

The British comedian is filming a movie based on the fictional character Bruno, a gay Austrian fashion reporter who conducted gag interviews on HBO's "Da Ali G Show."

Cohen, in disguise in a blond wig and preppy outfit, marched with demonstrators who support Proposition 8 while being trailed by cameras in a rally across from City Hall.

When photographers and reporters realized who he was and tried to approach the star, members of his film crew tried to shield him, and he was eventually whisked away in a van.
