Sacha Baron Cohen told Britain’s Daily Telegraph newspaper that he is retiring his Borat and Ali G characters. ”When I was being Ali G and Borat I was in character sometimes 14 hours a day and I came to love them, so admitting I am never going to play them again is quite a sad thing,” Cohen says in the paper’s Friday edition. The actor-comedian can currently be seen in theaters portraying a singing barber in Tim Burton’s Sweeney Todd. (AP via Yahoo!)
