Obivously Freddie has been cast but I was thinking about Brian. Would would people think about Russel Brand as Brian? I don' know how people in the UK feel about him but he is tall and lanky and has some similar features.

Hahahahahahahahahaha are you serious? :P
Id never have even considered him, but now that you've said it, I can see where you're going with it.
He would be pretty cool, but there's two things that are niggling at me,
1) I doubt Rusell can play guitar, at least like Brian.
2) Dr. May is totally devoid of a sense of humour. :P

Why not just go totally mental and cast...

Stephen Merchant as Brian May
Ricky Gervais as Roger Taylor 
Karl Pilkington as John Deacon

I haven't decided on that one yet. I have two questions for Queenzoners: (1). Are they REALLY making this biopic?, and (2). It's funny I should mention Hopkins' hair being dyed for the Roger role, because I need closure on a popular rumour - did the most awesome drummer in the universe REALLY dye his hair green? The rumour says he did for a while, and dyed it NEON green. It this true?!??!!???
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yep, it is true, I don't know about neon green now, but he definitely did, but it was an accident as far as I know.

I think Andrew Garfield would be a good choice for Brian. Good young British actor you might remember from Social Network. And he's already got kinda 'big' hair.

Maybe Renee Zellweger for Mary.
