Back in August we posted a photo of Sir Ben Kingsley on the set of his latest film, The Invention of Hugo Cabret. It’s directed by Martin Scorsese and marks the helmer’s first entry into the children’s genre and 3D filmmaking. Today on Facebook (via The Playlist) we got our first glance at another actor dressed in character from the film, Sacha Baron Cohen. We also have a new photo of Kingsley that shows him looking a bit aged beyond his years. Check it out…
The Invention of Hugo Cabret is a highly praised novel written by Brian Selznick that centers on a 12 year old orphan boy (Asa Butterfield) who lives within the walls of a train station. It follows his daily journeys as he interacts with several suspicious characters including a bitter old man (Kingsley), a bookish girl (Chloe Moretz), and a local station inspector (Cohen). Jude Law is also stars as Cabret’s father, while Emily Mortimer plays the station’s flower shop girl, Lisette, and Michael Stuhlbarg plays Rene Tabard, a film restorer.

What do you think of Cohen’s look for the character? Is it how you imagined?
