Irish move: Cohen and Isla Fisher

Sacha Baron Cohen, currently shocking the world with his camp character Bruno, is leaving Hollywood for Ireland.

The comedy actor behind the characters Ali G and Borat, is set to move to Dublin with his gorgeous fiancee and child for the summer.

Actress Isla Fisher, best known for her stint in Australian soap Home and Away, is said to have just taken on a role in the new Irish-based action comedy, Your Highness.

The movie will begin filming in the coming weeks and the entire family is reportedly planning to make the capital city their base while Isla films her scenes.

The couple, who have been dating for over seven years, have a daughter together, Olive, and where possible, they always like to travel together for work commitments. But success comes at a price. The couple have confirmed they will be putting their long-anticipated nuptials on hold yet again due to their hectic career schedules.

They had originally intended to get married in August 2006, in a beautiful Tuscan village, but cancelled at the last minute.

They then told friends that they would finally tie the knot this summer in Italy, but now it looks like their visit to Ireland will force them to put their wedding plans on hold yet again.

The family are currently travelling the world as they promote Sacha's new smash hit movie, Bruno.

The couple are said to have begun researching their new home in Dublin last week when they visited London for the premiere of the Bruno movie.

The film follows the camp Austrian fashion reporter's journey as he interviews unsuspecting guests about a host of topics, including entertainment, celebrity and homosexuality.

Meanwhile, Isla's new movie is a medieval fantasy comedy, starring Danny McBride and James Franco, which follows a pot-smoking prince, who is given the responsibility of protecting his kingdom from mythical beasts but would rather hang out getting stoned.

McBride will play the prince, while Franco will take on the part of his brother, while the mythical creatures will be created in 'stop motion' with puppets.

Natalie Portman is also said to have signed on to play the female lead in the David Gordon Green film.
