London, Oct 30: Sacha Baron Cohen will be playing an extremist Northern football thug in his upcoming film.
It is understood that 'The Dictator' star will be seen throwing flares from the stands, and targeting players and referees with coins and beer bottles in the new movie, the Mirror reported.
A source told the publication that the 42-year-old actor loves playing extreme characters and has done some extensive research on how these football hooligans behave.
The insider added that Cohen will be pushing his own alter-ego as far as he can, making him incredibly stupid, narrow-minded and offensive. (ANI)
