Borat (Sacha Baron Cohen) will play Freddy Mercury
http://www.filmwad.com/sacha-baron-cohe ... 342-p.htmlLooks like Sacha Baron Cohen's gonna need to grow that Borat stache; the British comedian, best known for his film "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan," is set to star in a biopic of the band Queen. Baron Cohen will play the band's front man, Freddy Mercury, who bears a resemblance to the comedian.
Apparently, Johnny Depp was also up for the role but Baron Cohen won by a nose (pun intended). The film will show the wild life of the gay rock-star who partied until he contracted AIDS and died at age 45.
I think he'll be able to pull it off.
