Sacha Baron Cohen To Play Freddie Mercury - Screen Rant
I've got no problems with this.
Makes perfect sense. He's got the looks and he's damn good at a physical performance.
True. But can he sing?
...Well, according to the article he can, but not at a Freddie Mercury level. They'll probably voice over him anyway. But besides that, I think the casting works very well.
Two words: Sweeney Todd
Sachs was awesome in that movie!
I love Freddy Mercury, I hope Cohen takes the role seriously. Although there are a lot of aspects to Mercury's personality that would mesh well with Cohen's sense of humour.
I hope they dub his voice with Mercury's for the songs because nobody could sing like Freddy could.
my jaw dropped and broke into pieces with glee when i heard this.
I do not object to this.
I hope they give Cohen his massive Overbite. Voice over for the singing.
It was inevitable.
I can't wait for this
Alright! HIGH FIVE . This guy is such a fantastic actor, can't wait to see it
Totally spot on! I love the idea.
As long as the people involved with this take it seriously and give Freddie the respect he demands, then I'll support it wholeheartedly.
I hope he approaches it seriously and not as a BJ type thing. I know he's a good actor but I'd really hate for him to do the whole thing as a joke. I liked boratt, and sweeny todd, but didn't care for bruno
