Larry Charles in January W

In the January W Gabe Snyder gets director Larry Charles to talk about life BB (before Borat) and AB (after Borat).

When it was clear that Borat was going to be a giant hit, Charles was deluged with studio offers to direct what he calls “big-budgeted bad comedies.” He sent all the scripts back. “I have a moral qualm with a $100 million movie,” he says.

Snyder thinks Charles looks like a missing ZZ Top member, which isn’t exactly original.
Full disclosure: we’ve worked for him; we think he looks like a runaway rabbi; we think he’s a genius, too.
