LONDON, March 5 (UPI) -- British comedian Sasha Baron Cohen, known for his alter ego "Ali G," is going to marry actress Isla Fisher.

Cohen, 33, and Fisher, 28, who played Shannon in the Australia TV soap "Home and Away," will have a traditional Jewish wedding, London's Sun reported Friday.

"I will definitely have a Jewish wedding just to be with Sasha," Fisher said. "I would do anything -- move into any religion -- to be united in marriage with him."

Fisher studied Hebrew in order to please Cohen's devout parents, the Sun said.

Cohen's first series on HBO, "Ali G In Da USA," was a big hit and the comedian is working on a new project in Los Angeles.

Fisher said a specific wedding date has not been set, but the couple will live in Cohen's home in Hampstead, North London.
