You're right - John Deacon (JD) is the only man who could do this justice!! :-)

I think that Johnny Depp would make a great Freddie, especially when he had long hair. I just hope that he doesn't sing and mimes instead.

Depp's not gay. He's married to Vanessa Paradis and has two children. He's also had numerous relationships with women. In fact one of my problems with him is that he has been domesticated; no more trashing hotel room! LOL

But anyway, even if he was gay, why would that make him qualified to play Freddie? I would rather a great straight actor play Freddie than a bad gay actor. (Not that Johnny isn't great of course.)

Depp is a fully qualified homosexual, I've seen his certificates, he's the real deal. All of his well publicised romances have been clever media ploys to throw people off the scent, cunning!

Depp is a pretty versatile actor, I reckon he would do a worthy performance as Freddie. If not him then who else?

It has the potential to be very good, but could easily be very bad. I'm not convinced it will ever see the light of day

He was dating music producer David Geffen in the past,so being married proved nothing at all.

Johnny Depp would be a great Freddie. I think I read about him wanting the part and admireing Freddie's contributions to music - His makeup as Willy Wonka seemed an homage to Freddie's makeup in his "I'm Going Slightly Mad" video and the similarity is uncanny.

No way, Christian Bale should play Freddie.

True, Johnny Depp reminded me a lot of Freddie in that film. I think he might have modeled his look after Freddie... But where have you read about him wanting the part and admiring Freddie's contributions to music? I don't think it's been confirmed that he's on board yet...

I Agree, Christian Bale should play Freddie,  And if, Like in Hollywood they slighty change the story, then Christian/Freddie  could slip on the Batman costume & Kick some serious "Sheffield Brothers" Butt!!!!!!

Why do people keep thinking Johnny Depp would be the right actor to play Freddie Mercury in a film about Queen?  He's way too old!!!  He's already older now than when Freddie died!!!!  Sure, there are CGI techniques to make actors look younger (see X-Men 3) but, c;mon...seriously. Any film about Freddie would surely need to show him at some point (even in flashbacks) in his late twenties (Freddie was already 27 when the first Queen album was released)...and as good as Depp looks for a man his age (46), he cannot pull of playing 28 or 29 years old..or even mid 30's.

So, please, enough with the Johnny Depp to play Freddie requests. On top of that, sure, he does English accents, but I think any actor that plays Freddie should already be English. I think it should be an unknown actor if they ever do a film based on his life.
