Bruno and the Jews


Bruno isn’t quite the rabid anti-Semite that Borat was, and I don’t expect the second film showcasing Sacha Baron Cohen’s altar egos to be as funny as the 2006 flick, but Danielle Berrin has identified the top five Jewish moments in “Bruno,” which opens next month. One of those moments, not surprisingly, deals with Hollywood:

Bruno and his manager, desperate to land celebrity interviews, consult a chart they have made of top actors.  There is “Wilhelm Schmidt” (Will Smith), Adolf Pittler (Brad Pitt) and lastly, a man Bruno calls “Der Fuhrer.”  The camera pans to reveal the photograph of said star:  Mel Gibson.

Check out the other four, including Bruno’s attempt to bring fashion to an Orthodox community in Israel, at the Hollywood Jew blog.
