If in a few years or so some producer would come up with the idea to do a movie about Queen who would be his first choice for Freddie`s part ?
In my opinion Jean Reno really looks like Freddie in the 1988-1990 period. His nose disturbs a little but apart from that he`d be perfect.

what do you guys think ?

cheers

I heard someone mentionned Johnny Depp few days ago and I think that would be a great choice. The nose, the eyes and the high cheekbones.

I vote for an all-animatronic Muppet Freddie with the voice of Frank Oz.

I agree. I think he could definitely take on the role. The only bad thing is the obessive fangirls that would care about the movie just for him and not Freddie!

I don't really know. But i've seen a lot of motion pictures about music (Crossroads, the story of The Beatles, Def Leppard, etc., so a Queen film would be very nice.

I would love to see Johnny Depp. But then again, who could replace a legend?

I was talking to one of my superiors at work about this the other day, and though I maintain that Johnny Depp would be a great choice, I had to agree with him that using a nobody might be best. As he put it, the fact that we all recognize Johnny Depp would probably distract us from being able to see the character as Freddie, who is SUCH an individual, that it would be best not to be able to picture the actor in any other role. Like with Superman and Batman (thinking Christopher Reeves and Christian Bale - who was known, but not hugely famous), by starting off with someone relatively unknown for a certain character, it's easier for them to fully embody that character in our imaginations.

Maybe a wild idea, but how about that guy who plays Ali G, when he is that kazachstan news reporter he looks a bit like Freddie.

if there was a queen movie i think eric christen olsen could pull of Rodger. I think the story would be great if it was told by Rodger or John, because it would sort of give a good view of the films biggest stars (and im talking in as what they did in the group, not favoutism), Brian & Freddie

I thought the guy from Will And Grace (Will) was supposed to play him in a movie? What happened to that?

Nobody comes to mind! Harder even than Ray to pull off!

How about Gael Garcia Bernal with a serious makeup/eye contact job??

I've never thought of such a thing before...hmm ...sombody in Freddie's outrageous costumes...nooooo!!! impossible! ...even if I think about it without those costumes, nobody comes to my mind...and again, I think nobody can play Freddie.
