Baron Cohen's 'Dictator' Dumps 'Ashes' On Ryan Seacrest On Oscars Red Carpet

Ryan Seacrest knew something was up when 'The Dictator' chose him on the Oscars red carpet, he just didn't know what until it was too late.

Guarded by two models in military garb, Sacha Baron Cohen claimed to be carrying the ashes of the late North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, whose face was displayed on the container.

He said it was Kim's dream "to be sprinkled over the red carpet and over Halle Berry (photosHalle Berry photos)'s chest."

Then, at the first chance, he "accidentally" spilled the ashes over Seacrest's tuxedo.

"When someone asks you who you are wearing, you can say Kim Jong-il," Cohen deadpanned.

"I had a feeling something was coming," said Seacrest, wiping off his jacket.

As the 'American Idol' host continued to interview celebs, after a commercial break to clean himself off a bit, he had to explain his dirty tuxedo.

Before the incident, the actor claimed to be wearing John Galliano -- the disgraced designer who was tried in France on charges of making anti-Semitic remarks -- but said his socks were simply from Kmart.

"As Sadaam Hussein once said to me, ‘Socks are socks, don't waste money,'" he said in character.

Baron Cohen was allowed to attend the ceremony, after being initially told he was unwelcome if he tried to pull a publicity stunt for his film.
