In-character interviews.I largely was immune to a large portion of October's Borat media onslaught (not that my precious Times or Economist emerged unscathed).
Is it admirable that Sacha Baron Cohen refuses to break character, or that World War Z author Max Brooks pretends that zombies are real? Yes. Is it funny? Usually. Is it also annoying to never get real answers? Definitely.
But ugh. Letterman, Conan, Leno, Regis. The shtick gets old.
Anyway, I was reading Ann Althouse (so you don't have to) and noticed this: From NPR's Fresh Air, an interview with Sacha Baron Cohen.
That's right, not in character. Maybe I could ask him for my ten bucks back.
