Sacha Baron Cohen Challenges Miley Cyrus For Most Shocking Celeb Of Award Season With Deathly Prank At The Britannia Awards!
Sacha Baron Cohen nearly terrified half the crowd at BAFTA-LA's Britannia Awards on Saturday night when he pushed an elderly woman in a wheelchair off the stage while accepting the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award For Excellence In Comedy.
The woman in question was identified as Grace Collington, the oldest surviving actor to have worked with Charlie Chaplin in a silent movie, 1931's City Lights, even though no such person is listed in the movie's IMDB credits.
Thankfully, for all parties concerned, but mostly the woman in the wheelchair pushed headfirst off a stage, the stunt was just a prank.
Ch-ch-check out the scary Awards show prank (above)!!!
Harry Potter could be playing THE iconically flamboyant Queen rocker on film???
Daniel Radcliffe is the latest name to come out of the casting rumor mill for the Freddie Mercury biopic, allegedly putting producers under his wizardly spell!
While we have no official confirmation he's set to star, a source close to the project revealed:
“Daniel has been told the part is his if he wants it. Despite his youth, Daniel impressed movie bosses with his portrayal of gay poet Allen Ginsburg in this year’s movie Kill Your Darlings. Plus, he’s closer in height to Freddie than Sacha, who’s much taller. Daniel can really sing, too.”
But now, producers really like the idea of Danny playing the part, and are prepared to offer him big money to make it happen!
Would you just die to see HP singing rock classics like Bohemian Rhapsody and We Are The Champions?!
We need to make this rumor a reality ASAP!

With the future Queen having just given birth to the royal baby, there's another Queen that doesn't have a future at all anymore.
That's right, Sacha Baron Cohen has dropped out of the Freddy Mercury biopic film due to creative differences with the living members of the rock group.
Perhaps the Dictator felt a little dictated to after the band members wanted a more PG story about Queen whereas Sacha wanted a more gritty, darker version. The band also failed to approve his choice for a writer and options for potential directors.
Sounds like he was seriously "unddaaah presshaaa" if he had to say "will you let me go" to Queen!
Oh well! Looks like Sacha will have to carry on as if nothing really matters to him. (Cue: wind chime + gong)

Isla Fisher’s rise to Hollywood fame and success hasn’t been easy.
In fact, her marriage to Sacha Baron Cohen hasn’t exactly helped her either, despite what one might think! The actress revealed to the July issue of UK Cosmo magazine that her husband’s success isn’t necessarily representative of her own:
Kanye West might temporarily be switching industries.
However, Kanye might want to reconsider his potential attachment to the project! Things were getting violent on set yesterday as Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were caught beating up co-star Sacha Baron Cohen with crowbars!
Ch-ch-check it out (above)! And don't freak out, folks — it was for a scene!
We can already tell this film is going to be EPIC!
