Rumors of Sacha Baron Cohen’s involvement in a potential Freddie Mercury biopic have been circulating for about a year now. The Audio Dope never expected any real news to manifest from these rumors, but turns out we were wrong. According to many media sources, Cohen is the main candidate set to potentially star as the Queen frontman.
As long as Sacha Baron Cohen portrays Mercury in an accurate manner, The Audio Dope will be happy. Cohen and Mercury clearly resemble each other and we hope Cohen’s depiction of the legendary frontman will resemble Mercury as well. More news to come!
