  3. I don't blame him. It's so laughable that it even happened, that it became a premise that practically begs to be made into a comedy. Granted, I can probably think of a few who can do it better, but I'll see it nonetheless.

  4. The minute I read this I laughed. I think Cohen is a fearless, really out there performer, and he could pull this off. If done right it could be a great satire of homophobia. I'm just laughing picturing him play Asian and say "Resbian."
