Bohemian Rhapsody is the tale of Freddie Mercury (portrayed by Rami Malek), the glamorous, tragic figure who was the front man for the band Queen.  Rami is joined by Ben Hardy, Gwilym Lee, Joseph Mazzello, Allen Leech and Lucy Boynton in the film which looks at the band’s music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury who shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet.

House Lannister of Casterly Rock might be one of the Great Houses of Westeros, but they don’t hold a candle to Mario and the House of Nintendo’s throne of game consoles. Aaron Jasinski made this beautiful parody piece of the original Game of Thrones promotional pic, we can’t wait to see him do a painting of Kirby in full Tyrion armor slapping Joffrey like a bitch.

Yes folks, you’ve read that headline right. Sacha Baron Cohen has been casted to play the great singer Freddie Mercury in an upcoming Queen biopic. The film will be written by Peter Morgan, who has also wrote  for films such as The Queen and Frost/Nixon. Also, the remaining members of the band has formed a company to be part of the project. The film may be released sometime in 2011.

While I didn’t like the idea when I first read about this, I later came to realize that this may work for the best after doing some thinking (that’s right, fat boy here can think). I think Cohen can definitely get the look down and that maybe, just maybe, will be able to do the singing (hey, I watched him on Sweeny Todd and thought he did okay).

What do y’all think about this casting news? Can you imagine Borat singing Flash! or does the thought of that disgust you? Tell us what you think by leaving a comment.
