First of all, a movie about "Queens" about freaking time if you ask me.
I do genuinely want to see it.
But Sacha Bohen known from "Borat" and "Bruno" playing the infamouse singer... that is interesting.
Well, I just don't know what I fell about that casting choice.
let me put it straight, I freaking hate "Borat" and "Bruno" I personally find them to be stupid, disgusting not at all funny movies.
But the few other places I have seen him in other movies, directed by somebody else like in "Sweeney Todd" I like him.
He is capable of acting and being both funny, over the top and go back to a more serious situation, on a huge plus side he is differently not afraid of being camp which is very important when being cast as the dear Freddie. And he can sing to.
All though, I would prefer it if they kept with the original Queen soundtrack and recordings instead of having Bohen Corner doing covers.
And if the casting was up to me, I know exactly who I would want as Mercury.
Freaking Prince Poppycock! no question about it!
Poppycock is fun, young, good looking, artistic, camp, have attitude, talented, clearly gay.
I mean, he would be to perfect.
note, I have no idea wehter poppycock is gay or not, and frankly I don't care, but Mercury was gay, so it was meant as a reason why he should totally be Mercury.
