Is Borat Too Big For Shared Vanity Fair Cover?

Apparently. According to Nikke Finke, Sacha Baron Cohen, Will Ferrell, Ben Stiller and Jack Black were supposed to don the cover of Vanity Fair‘s annual Hollywood issue, but Cohen and Ferrell’s manager, Jimmy Miller, reportedly nixed the deal, contending his clients were too big for a shared cover. Owen Wilson and Chris Rock were then summoned.

You’ll recall that Cohen was rumored to have been up for the magazine’s November cover [click on our faux rendering, right] but Graydon Carter went with George Clooney.
