<a href="http://nymag.com/daily/entertainment/2009/06/highlights_from_brnos_producti.html" target="_blank">NY Mag</a> recently obtained some production notes from Brüno, which for once are actually interesting (production notes are usually just a collection of the cast and crew's embarrassing, sycophantic praise for each other, like a <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daisy_chain_(sex)#Daisy_chain" target="_self">daisy chain</a> in print form).

I was trying to avoid this because all I do is talk about Conan O'Brien all the time, but it seems like Bruno's appearance on "The Tonight Show" last night (video below) is the big story today.

Brüno and friends recently made an appearance in Germany wearing furry, anatomically correct bodysuits (with matching Ugg boots), an idea he clearly stole my <a href="http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/bodysuit-family.jpg" target="_blank">old family portraits</a>.

Sacha Baron Cohen is a kosher Jew, so he pretty much had carte blanche to do all the Jew jokes he wanted in Borat.
