(From Daily Mail) He retired his famous alter-ego in 2007 but Sacha Baron Cohen is bringing Ali G back.

The 42-year-old comedian has agreed to record introductions which will air before old episodes of Da Ali G Show as part of the Ali G: Rezurection season on Fox’s FXX comedy channel.

The recording of new material forms part of a deal which will give FXX the first option on new ideas by Sacha.

FX executive Nick Grad said: “We’re thrilled to be in business with Sacha Baron Cohen. He is an amazing talent and we look forward to him developing new series for FXP. We’re also excited to introduce Da Ali G Show and Sacha’s characters to a new audience on FXX, and we can’t wait to see how he will incorporate new, original content in the episodes.”

Alongside Ali G, whose real name is Alistair Leslie Graham, Da Ali G Show also featured Borat and Bruno who went on to headline feature films.

Ali G originally appeared on Channel 4’s The 11 O’Clock Show and later went on to have his own programme Da Ali G Show in 2000.

HBO picked up the series in 2003.
