Queen's Roger Taylor Slams Sacha Baron Cohen, Says He Would Have Been 'Utter Sh-t' as Freddie Mercury

Queen drummer and founding member Roger Taylor is not holding back his thoughts about Sacha Baron Cohen.

Roger is now revealing his thoughts on what would have happened if Sacha has portrayed Freddie.

“I think he would have been utter sh*t. Sacha is pushy, if nothing else,” he told Classic Rock magazine. “He’s also six inches too tall. But I watched his last five films and came to the conclusion he’s not a very good actor. I might be wrong there. I thought he was an utterly brilliant subversive comedian, that’s what he’s great at. Anyway, I think Rami did a brilliant job in an almost impossible role.”
