Sacha Baron Cohen really fooled some big names in right-wing politics while shooting his new show.

Far-right politician Roy Moore was apparently duped into participating in Cohen's upcoming series Who Is America?, where the comedian went undercover for a year to interview unwitting politicians. While we don't know if Moore will actually be featured in the show, the disgraced former judge confirmed he was interviewed by Cohen in a statement obtained by NBC News.

Moore, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by 12 women, including multiple accusations of sexually assaulting minors, felt the need to come out in front of the release of Who Is America? with his own statement about how much he loves the U.S., God, and Israel. He even mentions that he's "involved in several court cases presently to defend my honor and character against vicious false political attacks by liberals like Cohen."

Moore made headlines when he was running to fill Alabama's Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions, a race he lost to Democrat Doug Jones. Moore has known ties to white supremacists and is openly homophobic.

The former judge isn't the only right-wing politician to get tricked by Cohen. In an early teaser for Who Is America?, there was a clip of Dick Cheney signing a water boarding kit during an interview, and Sarah Palin followed that news with her own admission that she was duped by Cohen.

Palin and Moore both criticized Cohen's approach, with Moore saying that he would "never hide my identity and deceive others only to mock and ridicule them," and referring to Showtime as a "shadowy media group."

The few names that we know have been duped by Cohen for Who Is America? are pretty big, but we'll have to wait until the first episode airs July 15 before we see exactly how they are portrayed and if there any more juicy interviews.

Either way, congrats on the early publicity, Showtime.
