Jeff's Notes Title
Jeff!Borat was originally to be directed by Todd Phillips (Road Trip, Old School & Starsky and Hutch). But creative differences between Phillips and Sacha Baron Cohen meant that Todd Phillips walked away from the project.

Borat's hair and moustache are real. Sacha Baron Cohen grows them out when he plays Borat.
