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.
