Ryan Seacrest on Sacha Baron Cohen: 'I did not know he was going to do that'

"I definitely did not know that he was going to do that!" Seacrest reveals, according to US Weekly, during Monday's On Air with Ryan Seacrest. "He comes over, and I asked him a couple of questions, but ... You know that feeling in your gut."

Sacha, in character as The General from his upcoming comedy "The Dictator," said he was carrying the ashes of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il.

Seacrest says he "saw the urn coming up. It was getting closer to my chest, and then it tipped over, and it wasn't the wind. He spilt it on my tuxedo!"

But always the Boy Scout, Seacrest came prepared -- thanks to his mom, who told him, "always make sure to bring two jackets, because you never know what's going to happen!"

And we're sure his mom was referring to Sacha Baron Cohen.
