Ben Whishaw To Play Freddie Mercury?
From Sacha Baron Cohen to Daniel Radcliffe, there have been quite a few names in the mix to play Queen rocker Freddie Mercury, but if bandmembers have their say it'll be openly gay (and married!) actor Ben Whishaw who brings their bandmate to life on screen!
According to Gay Star News:
Speaking on The One Show, Queen drummer Roger Taylor told hosts Chris Evans and Alex Jones they hope the initials of the actor to play the role of Mercury would have the initials "BW."
When asked by Evans if that actor may be Whishaw, Taylor said: "Well, we hope so!"
Whishaw previously played Keith Richards in the Rolling Stones biopic Stoned and Bob Dylan in I'm Not There so he has experience stepping into the shoes of musical legends.
What do you think of the James Bond film-actor taking on the part, Instincters?
