WASHINGTON – Former Georgia Rep. Bob Barr faced questions Wednesday on Capitol Hill over his cameo appearance in comedian Sascha Baron Cohen's movie.
Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., questioned Barr on his appearance in "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan."
Barr said the movie was pitched to him under false pretenses and he hasn't seen it.
Barr said "a movie that revels in nude male wrestling" isn't high on his priority list to see.
Cohen pretends he's a reporter from Kazakhstan in the film and meets with Barr. He gives the former congressman a slice of homemade cheese and after Barr eats it, Cohen tells him that the milk came from his wife.
Barr said he didn't sue over the film because he didn't want to draw more attention to the movie.
Specter told Barr "it was a most extraordinary movie" adding "the interview with you was about the only part of the movie worth seeing."
