Borat 2: Sacha Baron Cohen Stayed in Character For Five Straight Days to Hang Out With Conspiracy Theorists

In a new profile piece from the New York Times, Cohen reveals he went the length to move in with two conspiracy theorists for five days, where he lived in-character while shooting the highly anticipated sequel.

The first Borat very much dove into the world of satire head-first, something Cohen double-downs on this time around as he shines a light on an American political landscape that's never been as divisive.

As the comedian tells the Times , he decided to move in with the conspiracy fiends to show “that they’re ordinary folks who are good people, who have just been fed this diet of lies.

They’re completely different to the politicians who are motivated by their own power, who realized that they can create fear by spreading these lies through the most effective propaganda machine in history."

In the Times profile, Cohen says he makes sure never tell his wife — actor Isla Fisher — what dangerous stunts he's about to pull.

On set means coming to the minivan, which carried me around when we were shooting ‘Bruno.’ And there ended up being a police chase.
