Add a Baltimore driving-school instructor to the list of persons who appeared in the Borat movie and are now suing the filmmakers and 20th Century Fox. In the lawsuit filed Tuesday, Michael Psenicska claims that the producers had persuaded him to appear in the film by telling him they were making a documentary about the integration of immigrants into American society. Psenicska said that he fell for the alleged deception because he often teaches foreigners how to drive. Fox spokesman Gregg Brilliant told the Associated Press Tuesday: "He signed a release, and we have an agreement. ... Now, 2 1/2 years after giving his consent and more than one year after the movie was released, Mr. Psenicska has decided to file a lawsuit, citing the financial success of the film, in spite of our agreement."
The actor plays the Queen frontman in the forthcoming movie 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.
The novel's author saw a cut of the film and loved each of the changes the movie's director had made.
The filmmaker departed the project over differing 'visions'.
