    Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide, no escape from reality... Not really a Queen fan, but that's inspired casting.



    Would you go and see this movie, or maybe rent it?

    Best Queen tune: Somebody To Love

    I agree, it is great casting. I just wonder if he has the chops. Comedic actors have surprised in the past before though, so I won't count him out.

    Very good idea. Are they gonna give him the teeth too? :)

    My favorite Queen song is "You're my Best Friend"

    I have seen Sacha Baron Cohen in "different" roles before (like his truly strange but fantastic role in Burton's version of Sweeney Todd) and I think he could be great in this. Also, he has an amazing likeness to Mercury.

    As a Queen fan, I'm looking forward to this. :)

    This looks good! I'm not a huge Queen fan but I'd definitely want to see it.

    Favorites tunes are: We Are the Champions*, Somebody to Love, Killer Queen, and Bohemian Rhapsody.

    *Even though it's sooooo overexposed.

    Seems like it is good casting. I'm not such a fan to go see it in the theater. Will wait until it comes to Redbox and then watch it.

    I haven't seen any of this guy's movies, but this one sounds like it has potential. I'd like to see it.

    Most likely 2012, I think they just started casting. I wonder if he will sing or use Mercury's tracks.

    About 30 mins from my place is the flat that Freddy Mercury died in; the walls and garden door outside covered in scribbled messages from fans, and about a year ago, I was sitting outside at a restaurant table in Fulham, right next to Brian May and his wife, Anita Dobson. He was nursing a beer, was wearing shorts with the bandiest legs and hugest mop of hair... I didn't interrupt their evening for an autograph.

    You should have approached him and asked if he was the famous astrophysicist Brian May. You could have discussed his research for his PhD. :)

    It doesn't. I know exactly who he is. And as such, I want to avoid this movie.
