Looks like Sacha Baron Cohen's gonna need to grow that Borat stache; the British comedian is set to star in a biopic of the band Queen. Baron Cohen will play the band's front man, Freddy Mercury, who bears a resemblance to the comedian.
The resemblance is striking. It is perfect casting. Apparently Johnny Depp was up for the role, but Borat is Perfect for it.
That is going to be one hell of a movie. I can easily see him get all of Freddy Mercury's mannerisms down exactly. Maybe he can sing too. The world greatly misses Freddy Mercury. He was truly a talented man. And the band had a sound like none other. No one then, and no one since has managed to put so much raw emotion into song and music. Their sound was truly unique.
I was just listening to the Highlander Soundtrack (A Kind Of Magic)the other night and as always I was amazed by the sheer volume of epic emotion and humanity in that album. It captures the epic lonely beauty of the Movie. The sorrow of living forever, the pain, the wonderful gift of existence.
I can't wait.
