Who do you think could play Freddie in a movie? I'd have to say Johnny Depp.

In "Before Night Falls" he had two roles: Bonbon, the transvestite prostitute and Lieutenant Victo. His Lieutenant Victo kinda has a Freddie mustache goin' on there:

What about one of the guys who already played him in that Messina play? That Amir whatshisname (I forget now) was good.

I don't even see why the Will & Grace guy is recommended for this.

We should be glad there's no movie, though. It would probably end up with something like Elijah Wood and McCauley Culkin could be Roger and Dominic Monaghan could be, well, John Deacon was better looking than Dominic Monaghan. Hmmm.

Johnny Depp could play everybody, but it would be so much running around for him.

The fun bit would be doing the soundtrack, where the Queen songs are covered by contemporary bands. The Jennifer Lopez version of Another One Bites the Dust, etc.

Johnny Depp could definately play ANYONE. He is such a great actor. He's been everything from a transvestite prostitute to a drug dealer to a pirate to a... well a LOT of things. He's even soon to be Willy Wonka. And I'd have to say, if they ever did a remake of Rocky Horror, he could be Dr. Frank N. Furter!

Johnny Depp as Freddie Mercury?
Please don't destroy what respect I have for him as an actor!! I was hooked on Mr Depp since his 21 Jump Street days.
Then again...his Edward Scissorhands looks uncomfortably close to Freddie's Slightly Mad character, except for the knives-for-hands...

I never realized the similarity! Cool! All the more reason for Johnny Depp to play him. Tell me you wouldn't want to see Johnny Depp dancing around in those reeeeeeally pants... or leotards. Also, Johnny Depp has some "rock star" experience- he was in a band for a while, even after he started acting. It actually was semi-well-known.
Not that I even think there is going to be a movie about Queen and/or Freddie Mercury, but I love making up casts.

It DID work, thank you!! LOOK at the similarities there -- God, how FRIGHTENING -- Freddie didn't pinch that look, did he??? (I forgot what year Edward Scissorhands came out -- forgive the brain fart!! LOL)
