Sacha Baron Cohen (aka Borat) has secured a salary in excess of $30 million for his next film, in which he will portray Bruno, the gay “voice of Austrian youth TV,” who mercilessly mocks denizens of the U.S. fashion and entertainment industry.

Daily Mail:

Sacha Baron Cohen has become Britain’s highest paid actor after securing himself a salary in excess of 16 million [British pounds] for his next film.

The wage is based on a one-off payment of around 7 million [British pounds] for the rights to his new movie Bruno, plus a hefty ‘back-end’ deal which will see Baron Cohen pocket 15 percent of box office takings.
