Sasha Baron Cohen Hires Gay Adult Stars for 'Bruno' Movie

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — "Borat" star Sasha Baron Cohen has turned to the adult industry for some of the talent in his upcoming movie "Bruno."

Officially titled "Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Male," Cohen's next mockumentary follows a flamboyantly gay Austrian fashion journalist on a journey across America.

Bruno's misadventures have brought him face to face with anti-gay evangelical leaders and angry football fans, but for his new movie, Cohen needed his character to encounter a gay orgy.

Enter gay adult talent agent David Forest, who found some willing bodies. After auditioning 10 gay performers, Forest tapped stars Tony Capucci and Tyler Saint.

"There's a scene where Bruno comes to the hotel with some guys," Forest said. "They're all trying to get Bruno to come upstairs for an orgy. Five guys are there. Two of them are my guys. Bruno apparently doesn't want to join the party, but he watches through the window. I'm told it's hilarious."

The scene was shot at the Aramano Hotel in Burbank, Calif., which happens to be right across the street from Sardo's Grill & Lounge, which hosts Porn Star Karaoke every Tuesday night.

Cohen has worked with Forest before. In a gag photo of Bruno and his "son" – an adult performer known as Stonie – Forest provided the talent, though he's got his sights set on bigger prizes in the future.

"No more triple-X for me," he said. "We've got our eye on the mainstream."
