If you’re like us, you probably think the Tesla Model S is long overdue for the kind of feature-film close-up enjoyed by so many other cool cars. That might be about to change thanks to Sacha Baron Cohen’s upcoming flick, The Brothers Grimsby.

The film casts Cohen as a dim-but-lovable, lower-middle class Brit searching for his long-lost younger brother (played by Mark Strong) only to discover his sibling has become a world-class assassin who, at least in one scene, drives a bulletproof Model S.

That particular bit (included in the trailer) gives a good idea of what we’re sure is a gag-heavy script that may or may not be worth the price of admission, if past SBC films are any indication.

The Brothers Grimsby is the latest in a long line of movies and TV shows to put cool cars front-and-centre; check out our Best Cars on TV slideshow, and decide for yourself if the Model S deserves the kind of screen time Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest oeuvre seems keen to provide.

As a child, Chris spent much of his time playing with toy cars in his parents’ basement; when his mother would tell him to go play outside, he made car sounds while riding his bicycle or dug roads for his toys in the flower garden. Now he gets to indulge his obsession playing with real cars that make their own cool noises, and gets paid for it.
