Melbourne, Feb 6 (ANI): Funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen took advice of his own Italian coiffeur for his role as flamboyant Italian barber Adolfo Pirelli, in the film Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street.

In order to make sure that his hand with a razor was up to the mark, the man behind Ali G took his barber Carmelo Guastella on set to watch as his character pitted his skill in a shaving contest against co-star Johnny Depps murderous Todd.

Sachas very professional. He takes his roles very seriously and does a lot of preparation, so much so that he commandeered me for four days to make sure he really looked like he was shaving on set, The Daily Express quoted Guastella, as saying.

Sacha did it marvellously, sing
