I See A Little Silhouette Of A Man

Posted on 06 September 2010 by Christian

Sacha Baron Cohen (Bruno, Borat, Talladega Nights) has struck a deal to play Queen’s front man Freddie Mercury in an film being scripted by Peter Morgan the British screen writer behind The Queen, Last King of Scotland, and Frost/Nixon. Now I know what you are thinking, “What!? The Borat guy is playing Freddie Mercury?” but hold up…before you grab your torches, Let us go back to another bio pic that cast a comedian.. Any one see that movie “Ray”? That got Jamie Fox an Oscar.. Now i am not saying that Sacha Baron Cohen is a front runner for an Oscar because of it, but in my opinion this could be that role he needs to really stretch his legs as an actor and gain a lot of respect doing it.. Now I got to say Queen has a little spot in my heart going back to my college days at a little bar called Scruffy Murphy’s and their Karaoke Wednesdays were I would tear up some Bohemian Rhapsody after about 10 keystone lights.. We would like to get your feedback on this subject, so leave us some comments and tell us how you feel.
