New Movie, New Lawsuit For Sacha Baron Cohen

1bruno1.jpgBruno, Sacha Baron Cohen‘s latest film, won’t hit theaters till next month. But the lawsuits have already started rolling in. The AP reports:

Richelle Olson sued the 37-year-old actor and NBC Universal on May 22, claiming an incident at a charity bingo tournament that was filmed for the upcoming “Bruno” left her disabled.

Olson claims she was severely injured after struggling with Cohen and his film crew at the event, held in Palmdale, Calif., two years ago. The lawsuit states she now needs a wheelchair or cane to move around.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages of more than $25,000.

There is absolutely nothing funny about disabling old ladies. That being said, we really hope this bingo brawl makes it into the movie.
