We got nothing.

The newly released photo of Sacha Baron Cohen of Bruno and Borat fame in his upcoming film, The Dictator, pretty much speaks for itself.

The British comedian's new vehicle will "tell the heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed," according to Paramount Pictures.

And here he is:

Sacha Baron Cohen is The Dictator

DESPOT EXTRAORDINAIRE: Fidel meets Kim Jong Il meets Saddam.

Furthermore, "A heartless dictator finds he's been mutinied against by his number two man and replaced in power by an unsuspecting sheepherder lookalike."

Cohen will be playing dual roles. As he wanders the streets, "he finds himself in an organic food store and meets the owner (Anna Faris). Her character will show the dictator a new way of life and perhaps a little romance!"

Sounds tremendous, we can't lie.
