Your problem is that you don't think Rami Malek is attractive? Are you aware this is the role of Freddy Mercury? Have you ever seen pictures of Freddy Mercury? Or are you legally blind? Freddy Mercury was not attractive

And no Malek is probably not a bad boy in real life. And this may be shocking to you, but actors don't have to actually have the same characteristics and flaws as the people they portray. Actors who portray killers in movies aren't really killers. I hate to burst your bubble, but acting is pretending

Project Trainwreck, the only interest now being how many carriages and fatalities. To have a chance of succeeding the film would need vital English input for the feel of the glamrock era when Queen made their brilliant entrance. Don't know who the screenwriter is, but he/she is bound to be restricted by the micro-managing band survivors.

The edge and intelligence Baron Cohen would have brought might have given the film a fighting chance. As it is, I'm left wondering how badly Singer fails at portraying Queen at Live Aid, Mercury's (sensational) finest hour. How can that be improved upon?

I now await the announcement that Kenneth Branagh is to direct a biopic about Prince, starring David Oyelowo.

Singer is a great director although he needs a good screenplay for things to work out. I'm assuming you're talking about Singer being a chickenhawk. Well, if the guys he fucks are over 16 I don't really care. I'm tired of the constant frau rage here about openly gay Hollywood directors.

Who wants to see Freddie Mercury Disney style? Hyping this casting ("hey look we're not whitewashing!") is just a way to get people to give this mess a second look.

Well you must be from Myanmar then because everybody heard "We are the Champions."

Freddie was stunning looking, nobody thought he was "ugly.". Back in those days being striking was more important than looking symmetrical adn average, particularly in rock and roll. Yeah he was born in fucking Zanzibar where dental care was not on a high level. His dad was British Empire bureaucrat, he spent nine years at a boarding school for Anglos outside Bombay during early years of Indian independence after the crash of British prestige, and then he moved back to Zanzibar before moving to England in 1964 at the age of 18, going to college and working shit jobs until his career took off. He came from an insular, isolated, racist, proud community, was barely parented, lived off the debris of a failed empire, before moving to the font of the Empire with his shattered parents to start again at 18. He'd already lived enough for about three biopics before he started Queen, a "coming out" so bold that it simply sailed over most people's heads, including gay people.

R89: I don't need a lesson in what Parsis are. I am one. Parsis, yes, descend from Persian Zoroastrian ancestors, who fled the Muslim invasions and landed in what is modern day India in the 9th and 10th C AD. More conservative Parsis believe they are "pure" and have never "mixed" with other Indians or allowed intermarriage, but any progressive, reasonable Parsi knows there has been plenty of 'mixing' over the years and that most modern-day Parsis are not 'purely' of Persian descent. DNA tests have proven that. Anyway, speaking for myself, given the extremely limited pool of actual Parsi actors, I think it's perfectly acceptable to cast an actor of any South Asian or Arab or Persian background who can look the part.

A lot of people think Styles is gay, so it shouldn't matter too much. He has a lot of swagger and stage presence, though they may have to fake the very high notes. They are about the same height and build.

Styles looks nothing like Mercury. Malek looks nothing like Mercury. And he's Egyptian not Greek. And he's gay, but I'm not sure how closeted.

Why would Freddie Mercury interrupt his career to wear headgear for five years? How is it even a question of why he didn't fix his teeth?

No one wants to see a movie about Queen, the band, minus the debauchery. That would be like making a movie ostensibly about Janis Joplin, but skipping over all of her addiction and personality issues and focusing on what Big Brother & The Holding Company did after she left them for her Kozmic Blues touring band.

I think they should scoop up one of these "alternate" actors that have been suggested to play Freddie Mercury in the "At Danceteria" adaptation. Although, FM is only a supporting character in the story in which he appears (Princess Diana is the main character and focus), it's still a great part. He dresses Diana up in male drag and then brings her to a gay bar with Kenny Everett and Cleo Rocos. He literally starts the story pretending to be Sophia in an episode of "The Golden Girls."

And while I'm on the subject, I think Paris Jackson should play Madonna in the Keith Haring section.

The movie is going to be about the band's career from formation to Live Aid, as Brian and Roger want it. If any party gets shown, it will be their infamous Halloween party in New Orleans during the "Jazz" tour.

Someone should make an unauthorized biopic of Freddie's life so his sexuality could be explored. And they should have an actor of Indian descent play him.
