Freddie Mercury, undoubtedly the best known name in the entertainment industry. Freddie was a global icon, and to this day is still considered to be one of the greatest musicians of all time.
During a discussion in the office today we got onto the topic of the highly anticipated biopic of Freddie Mercury’s life. Sacha Baron Cohen (of Borat and The Dictator fame) has been chosen to play the part of Freddie Mercury and there has been much speculation and discussion over whether or not he is the best choice for the role. The film has been approved by Freddie’s surviving band members (Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon) and so too has the choice to cast Sacha Baron Cohen.
What we would like to know is who you, our loyal Fanatics and Bookworms, think would be the best choice to play the part of Freddie Mercury? Post your choice of best Freddie in the comments section below 🙂
