Ok, it's been said a few times on other threads, but my vote for Freddie is Johnny Depp, altough I'm not sure his moustache is quite Freddie enough. But I definitely think with a fake dental piece, Johnny would make a good young Freddie Mercury.

Johnny Depp, definitely. I just saw Charlie and the Chocolate Factory this weekend and the shape of their faces are so similar.

Ten years ago i saw a picture of a tribute band in a Portuguese magazine (the band was from england ,i think). The reason of this picture was the singer similarities whith Freddie Mercury. He was dressed as Freddie Wembley 86 and believe me, at first look you could tell it was Freddie.
At the time they said that this guy was an actor, so...

Take care

I think it should be someone unknown so it would be more believable.


just turn yourself into anything you think that you could ever be

He was an actor indeed. The press got impressed because it was supose to be a contest where you could see other artists lookalikes. There was also a Jim Morrison, etc. but the similarities of this guy with Fredie Mercury were so impressive. I mean, it made the news at a Portuguese mag, so...

Take care

Jude Law would make a great Roger Taylor.
Alan Rickman for John Deacon.
I don't know about Brian though.

Alan Rickman is too old. No offense, but it wouldn't be really believable to have him play John in the 70s and 80s, when he's already older in the first place.

Don't you think if he was 20 years younger he would be perfect for the part?

He would be amazing.

Was thinking Johnny Depp as well BUT I agree with the voice that someone not famous would be more believable...

Who`s the actor brave enough to implant big teeth on his mouth? You know, it`s not just a case of being a good actor or not, he has to look a bit like Freddie, so the character is credible.
None of the western actors would do the job. They would have to pick an actor in the India movie market.

Take care
