J.B. Smoove (or Jerry Brooks), best known for his role on the hit show Curb Your Enthusiasm is joining funny man Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat) in his new comedy The Dictator.

The stand-up comedian and actor will play the role of “Usher” in the film. The film has already began filming in New York. No details have been provided about Smoove’s role.

The Dictator is a story about a ruler who “risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed,” according to a press release from Paramount studios.

Smoove is also reported to appear later this year in Fox’s We Bought a Zoo and The Sitter.
