I hope he serves the maximum possible prison sentence.

On the contrary, I applaud him for finally doing what should have been done long ago.
Although his explanation on why he did it: the characters were apparently "too familiar to the public". Apparently "familiar" is a Hollywood euphemism for "tired and embarrassingly unfunny".

Well, this is a special case, because his Ali G and Borat schtick depended on his "victims" not knowing they were being put on. The characters had limited lifespans to begin with.

Sorry.

When I see a play, I tend to forget that not everybody else has seen it too, and I had previously seen "Sweeney Todd" on stage, so I sorta failed to realize how spoilery this post would be.
