Sacha Baron Cohen
Born Oct. 13, 1971, in London, Sacha Baron Cohen spent a year on an Israeli kibbutz before attending Cambridge, where he studied history but immersed himself in theater. In 1998, he landed a role on the British comedy series "The Eleven O'Clock Show," where his Ali G character was born, and in 2000, he launched the Emmy-winning "Da Ali G Show." From there, it was on to the big screen with 2002's Ali G Indahouse.
Baron Cohen has since played a variety of roles, including a French Formula 1 racer in Talladega Nights and the title character in Borat (also receiving an Oscar nod for the screenplay). The always-animated actor lent his talents to Madagascar and its 2008 sequel as the voice of Julien the lemur.
In this trippy sequel to the 2010 blockbuster "Alice in Wonderland," young Alice returns from several years at sea and again passes through to the magical landscape, where she ends up journeying into the past to try to save the Mad Hatter.
