ALI G star Sacha Baron Cohen has hit success in America - he's signed up to show off his acting skills in movies.

After infiltrating the US with his comedy series DA ALI G SHOW, Cohen has signed with MOSAIC MEDIA GROUP with a view to start appearing in films.

Cohen, who divides his time between his native England and Los Angeles, will seek to follow the path of Jamie Kennedy and Johnny Knoxville, who have transported unorthodox comedy characters into starring film roles.

Jimmy Miller, Cohen's new representative, says, "He's got great comedy timing and acting, as well as an already huge European fan base, and clearly we think he's going to be a big comedy film star."

Cohen starred in the movie ALI G INDAHOUSE last year (02).
