It looks like Sacha Baron Cohen will be playing it straight(ish) in the newly confirmed Freddie Mercury biopic.
Sacha Baron Cohen has signed on to play Queen front man Freddie Mercury in an upcoming biopic, Deadline is reporting. The film will be written by Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen), and will be financed by GK Films, in conjunction with several other companies including Queen Films, which is made up of the surviving members of Queen. Production will begin in 2011.
Will Cohen be able to pull off the flamboyantly gay showman that was Freddie Mercury? Considering his character of Brüno makes Mercury look like Pat Robinson, I'm assuming he'll do just fine. In fact, if my understanding of Mercury is accurate, it will be a lot like the Brüno movie, except instead of being Austrian he'll be British, and instead of having a happy ending he'll die of AIDS. Basically Brüno meets Philadelphia.
