Is Sacha Baron Cohen At Risk For Deportation?

Yes. And then, unfortunately, as it turns out, no.

In an article that ran Sunday in Britain's Sunday Express Newspaper, Sacha Baron Cohen apparently opened up about his fears of being sent back to where ever it is that he came from.

"There are towns in certain states that I can’t shoot in. If I get arrested my visa could be taken away." Those "towns" being the entire states of Arizona and Kansas.

He talks about some high jinx that ensued after filming a particular scene for Bruno that resulted in a hotel manager calling police, forcing Cohen to make a hasty exit via fire escape, in high heels.

As far as Borat goes, he claimed he was deemed a threat to national security, “They had so many complaints that there was a Middle Eastern man driving through America in an ice-cream van that the FBI assigned a team to us.”

Well whether the reporter of the story just decided to go rogue, or if it's just another attempt for publicity by Cohen himself, TMZ is reporting that the whole thing simply just isn't true.

A rep for the actor denied everything citing it as BS, and emphasizes that there are no warrants currently out for his arrest, therefore no immediate threat to his Visa.

Depending on what side of the Baron Cohen fence your on, that's either good or bad news.

But if the let's-get-him-out-of-the-country story was true, we could probably bet money that Ryan Seacrest is somehow behind the initiative.
