In re: Can I sue Borat?

Ali G aka Sacha Baron Cohen aka Borat from Kazakhstan, duped a number of folks into being in his movie (he did pay them, and they said the things they said knowing it was on camera). The question comes up can they sue him for ‘tricking’ them. The Slate explainer goes over the release forms they signed (which were extremely detailed) so its a good possibility that the forward thinking lawyers of Borat would prevail if a court battle ensued.
