Sacha Baron Cohen is seemingly breaking his silence on the controversy swirling around his Showtime prank series to fire back at former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. But what we do know is that he's been interviewing various hacks, pundits, and even a former vice president in disguise as a new character he's created.

"Ruddick, a totally real individual who only joined Twitter back in April, went on to tell Palin he "[has] always admired you for TELLING THE TRUTH about Obama's birth certificate and the location of Russian Federation.

It's yet to be seen exactly what Baron Cohen did to Palin, but we'll be closer to finding out when Who Is America? hits Australian screens on Stan this Sunday. She was greeted by a man in a wheelchair, presumably Cohen, who identified himself as a veteran and proceeded to conduct "a long interview full of Hollywoodism's disrespect and sarcasm".

Moore issued a statement Thursday saying he accepted an expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C., in February to receive an award for his support of Israel. "As an American, I would never hide my identity and deceive others only to mock and ridicule them as this Showtime series is created to do". It's worth noting that Cohen is Jewish.

Failed GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore claimed he was tricked into appearing on Sacha Baron Cohen's Showtime television series and threatened to sue the comedian and the network. Child molestation is apparently OK, however.

"If Showtime airs a defamatory attack on my character, I may very well be involved in another", he wrote.

Conservative pundit and ex-congressman Joe Walsh has revealed on Twitter that he was also duped into an interview with Cohen for the show after being told that Steven Spielberg and Rupert Murdoch also took part.
