In ethnic-sensitive casting news, Variety reports that Sacha Baron Cohen has signed to produce and presumably star in "Accidentes," a comedy about an ambulance chasing Latino lawyer written by "Borat" co-writer Peter Baynham. Me, I'm still reeling from the news that Cohen will be playing Sherlock Holmes opposite Will Ferrell's Watson. (Could have been worse; imagine if they had cast it the other way around.)

Cohen will next be seen in "Bruno" (above), and to that end has recently been freaking Texans out with a few bouts of gay cage-fighting.
