Sacha Baron Cohen is everywhere these days, even though he's 'retired' both Borat and Ali G. Now, the British comedy star will be making a foray into drama, playing 60's activist Abbie Hoffman in The Trial of the Chicago Seven, the story about the seven defendants who were convicted of inciting a riot at the 1968 Democratic National Convention.
Hoffman was a pretty radical activist, and a lightning rod for a generation of people who felt disenfranchised. You have most likely never heard of him. Now, you'll have the opportunity to do just that, won't you?
