Rami Malek Set to Play Freddie Mercury in Queen Biopic

Rami Malek has been cast to portray Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, a biopic about his legendary group Queen.

The 35-year-old Mr. Robot star’s involvement was confirmed in a post from director Bryan Singer on his Instagram account.

“Looking forward to @ramimalek @whoismrrobot playing #Freddie photo,” the director wrote, along with a photo of the band.

Original Queen band members Brian May and Roger Taylor are set to serve as music producers for the film.

Sacha Baron Cohen was originally slated to star in the flick but eventually dropped out of the project.

    for once they actually pay attention to the origins of the main character which is fine but my only problem is the body type he’s pretty skinny compared to freddy
