This topic was probably brought up before,so pardon me if I fall behind on some topics.

First off,Queen is one of the man musician based movies you'd think they or VH1 would come up with by now.(As well as Pink Floyd,Kiss,and a few others.)I mean they did with Meatloaf,Beatles,Monkees,Hammer and even Def Leapord.

But who knows..maybe sometime this year.But anyways,if they made a movie about Freddie and the men of Queen,who would you like to see play the man himself and the others.

Right now,I can't think off the top of my head of any to play Freddie,but i'd like to hear what you think.

No! No! No!

I would not want VH1 to do a movie about Queen, that would ruin their legacy and the mystic about them, especially Freddie...actually Eric McCormack, the guy that plays Will on 'Will and Grace' was suppose to play Freddie in a movie about his life...but I dont know what the devil happened...that Def Lepeord movie was horrible, I actually saw that, on a very boring, rainy day might I add, lol...so was the MC Hammer movie, lol

The only actor I could see playing Freddie would be EWAN MCGREGOR!!! I think thats the only actor that could pull him off, honestly...now for Brian, Rog, and John, I havent got a clue, lol...but Fred's role would be tough to cast!

Well, it is almost universally agreed on this board that Johnny Depp should play Freddie.
I have a Maths teacher who looks a lot like Roger, but more like an 80 year old Roger.
And there was a guy who looked a lot like Brian at my school, but he left a couple of years ago.
John, I dunno. Just the back of his head required, anyway.


This can't end well.

Now I'll admit I saw Ray W/ Jamie Foxx...and he PULLED IT OFF GOOD...and that didnt ruin Ray Charles legacy...but I just dont really think a movie should be done about Queen, dont ask me why, I just dont think it should, I honestly rather read their bios here at Queenzone, hell, I'm just reading that, lol.

VH1 is a good channel to chose to do it
MTV would suck it up and there are no more big main channels that still play good music

Angelina Jolie's brother, James Haven is an actor and a Freddie look-alike. First time I saw him on CSI, I thought I was looking at a young Freddie. He'd be perfect for the role - give him some prosthetic teeth, brown contacts and set him loose - he does Broadway plays, so he can certainly sing - check him out!

Man, in that second picture
he looks exactly like Freddie!
But if you count that guy away, then...

-I think Johnny Depp or Ewan McGregor could play Freddie

-Sean Penn looks a lot like John (I'm probably the only one with this opinion) and he's a good actor, so..

-Jake Gyllenhaal could (dy his hair blond) play Roger (NOT Orlando Bloom, please!! That man can't act even if his life depended on it)

-Brian, I don't know... Tom Hanks? I dunno, really... George Clooney is probably my favourite actor, but I can't see him as any of the guys... Maybe Roger

I thought of this movie but Ray's Life and Cash's Life were kinda more eventful than Queen's. Why dont one of you guys write some big events in Queen history. That should be included

Meh, the story of a whole group would be too hard to tie together coherently unless you started the opening scene with Brian posting a note for a "Ginger Baker / Mitch Mitchell type drummer" on the board at Imperial College - to start at childhood, they'd have to call it "Freddie" and start with him, then have the other guys come in as supporting actors later. The film would end with a re-enactment of the Tribute Concert. Hmm...I might have to start writing.

I still really dont think a movie should be done on Queen, but Jake Gyllenhaal(one of my favorite actors in the world!) would look just like Roger if he dyed his hair blonde, that would be weird seeing him in blonde hair, lol...Sean Penn does look like John, and Angelina Jolie's brother does look like Freddie, lol...but I really dont think a movie should be done about them...lol @ Tom hanks!!!

Oh lawd Jesus not Tom Cruise, please lord no!!!

I could just picture him jumping up and down on Oprah's couch again:


Oprah:

So Tom, I hear you going to be doing a bio on the late great singer and frontman of the british rock band Queen, Freddie Mercury. So, how do you feel about all this, and was it tough fitting into the role...?

Tom Cruise:

Oh yes, but I pulled it off... (stands up on couch and starts jumping around) Freddie Mercury is awesome, Freddie Mercury is awesome!!! Crowd starts cheering...

(although I think the man is crazy, I'd have to agree wiht him on Freddie Mercury, lol)

I didn't really mean Vh1 to do a Queen movie literally,I meant they as to one of the more major movie companies,like they did with Ray and Walk the Line.

And you're right about that pic of angeline's brother,he'd be perfect as Freddie in a movie!

Sean Penn looks a litle like John Deacon someone said? Hmmmmmmm...I wonder now that you mention it.

well, we have James Haven(man, he really looks like our hero) to play Freddie andf Sean Penn to be Deacy... what about Brian and Roger? For Brian i should say from Jarvis Cocker Pulp(amazingly looklike on "bad cover band" video) and for roger i should say Kiefer Suderland.

What? Spike Lee, lol...what would it be like, Do the right thing? lol

I think Martin Scorsese, or maybe even Quentin Tarantino?

Nah - I couldn't picture the boys in either the mob, or in gun or swordfights. We'd do better with a director who can really bring characters across - maybe Paul Haggis (Crash) or Ang Lee.
