« on: May 08, 2007, 05:13:01 AM »

Oh, crap... it's not gonna be Johnnie Depp after all...

Sacha Baron Cohen to play Freddie Mercury

Quote
Sacha Baron Cohen is set to play Freddie Mercury in an upcoming biopic about the former Queen front man's life, reports www.mirror.co.uk.
Johnny Depp was in talks last year to star in the film, but Baron Cohen reportedly won over producers and band members.

I can at least picture Mr Cohen in the role. There remains the question of whether the man can act. There would, of course, have been little question that Mr. Depp could perform this part adequately.
