Cohen To Be Freddie Mercury?

Published on May 04, 2007 with No Comments

Borat and Ali G creator Sacha Baron Cohen has emerged as the frontrunner to portray Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in a biopic produced by Robert De Niro.

The former Habonim youth club member has beaten his Sweeney Todd co-star Johnny Depp to play Mercury, who died from AIDS in 1991, after impressing the film’s producers, reports The Sun.

An insider revealed: “Filmmakers are working flat out to get the best possible script. Sacha loves the idea he can get away with playing Freddie after modelling Borat’s look on him.”
