Enough about Johnny Depp as Freddie. If he's cast, who should play the rest of Queen? I vote for:

John - Edward Norton

Roger - Kiefer Sutherland

Brian - Will Ferrell (cuz he's tall and has naturally curly hair. Oh, come on. I could have said Dustin Diamond or Justin Guarini, but they're too young. Actually, I have no idea who should play Brian.)

Yes, I know they're all American (except for Mr. Sutherland), but so is Johnny Depp. And they're all roughly the same age, so they'll all look too old for the first tour but they'll look just right for Live Aid.

Now who would play Mary Austin?

Didn't someone (I think Brian) say that they would all play a part... I mean as themselves...
so Brian would be Brian, Roger - Roger, and John would be John, etc.

Right, so John would return to play himself in a film?

Fucking hell you people are deluded.

If this Queen Movie is for real (and I still don't believe Depp is already in the cast)...
I've said it before: John Deacon = Josh Charles
Do Imdb him! See for yourselves...

How about Toni Collette as Mary Austin? She's a good actress and there is a definite resemblence.


This can't end well.

Does it really matter who plays John? I mean, he's such a quiet character that we'll probably see about 3 seconds of John in the final cut (and that's when he plays the AOBTD bass riff). The rest of him will never leave the editing room. Sad but true, That's how Hollywood flix are these days.

A friend of mine suggested Adrien Brody for the role of John. I think that's a pretty good match. :D

If you're thinking that you can squeeze Freddie's life inside a two hour biopic and waste precious time bringing some famous cast to play three musicians who led pretty flat non-showbiz living, you don't know how Hollywood works.

If any famous actor is going to participate, he'll surely be casted to play Jim Hutton, Peter Freestone or the AIDS-infected guy.

Although it will be good to have a high profile film about Freddie, my real desire would be to have the film actually about Queen - we've already got 'The Untold Story' which gives the full, true Freddie life story, and this film will just add to the impression for those non Queen fan cinema goers that Freddie was the band, and the others were just his backing band

i have no idea of whos gonna play who, but whats this thing gonna be rated? i really hope that i can even see it, because most likely, there will be sexual stuff, that there gonna show, which makes it R, which rules me out.
