Cohen has been told he can’t walk the red carpet dressed as General Aladeen, a character he is playing in his upcoming comedy ‘The Dictator’, reports nypost.com.

‘The Dictator’ is about a nutty strongman who is part Muammar Gaddafi and part Saddam Hussein, with hints of Kim Jong-il.

Interestingly, Cohen is a voting member of the Academy and is also in the cast of ‘Hugo’, which has been nominated for 11 Oscars, playing the evil train station inspector.
