That doesn't think Johnny Depp is a good idea for portraying Freddie. (actually being serious)

I don't care too much about the acting, more that all my friends love Johnny, so If he plays Freddie, all my friends will watch it and realize how cool Queen are

That's how I see it, except on a broader scale. Famous actors will draw people to Queen. A simple movie will not.

I've nothing against Johnny Depp but I do have reservations about a film in general. I know that (good) actors do a lot of research on their subject before playing them but, let's be honest, there's still a lot about his life that is a closed book, when people don't have facts, you run the risk of creating inaccurate portrayals. Freddie was such a unique person not only in terms of character but also looks and speaking voice. I'm worried a film may end up merely parodying him as some over the top diva with huge teeth and a snooty accent.

i think johnny depp would be a good choice because he's a versatile actor. but anyone less famous would be also very good, because you can imagine "yeah, there's freddie" and not "hummmm well freddie looks very much like johnny depp".

I think he's a good idea because I don't care if the actors are twins and Johnny Depp is one of the only actors that will draw me to a movie simply because it's "him". I don't care about looks - I just think he's a great actor, and probably the only one that could get me to see a "Freddie Movie" - unless the reviews were SO FANTASTIC and A.O. Scott told me that if I didn't see it, I would burn in Hell.



I mean where do i start. Johnny Depp is a great actor - not quite. I think your opinions of actors are quite low. Try commenting on things that you understand. Really annoying hearing your opinions. In future shut up maybe.

You can't be the only one. There must have been a dozen threads on this proposed movie, and who would be fit to play in it.

I think that Johnny Depp will do a great job!

When I first heard about the film, I really hoped for Johnny Depp, and now that he is going to play/act Freddie, I'm really pleased!

Depp is on my top 3 actors, I think - After Robert De Niro.. . ..

I think Jim Carrey or Eddie Murphy are better for the Freddie role.

If Johnny plays Freddie it will bring in soo many new Queen fans as I asked my friend if she would watch the film and she said no. I then said what if Depp played him and she goes yeah.

Johhny Depp has alot of fans who watch every film he is in and so will most likely watch the Freddie film and bring in alot of new Freddie fans :)

Oh goody, another thread on the same subject...

Couldn't you have made the thread a bit more accurately titled, instead of this tease to gain attention?

Something like "I want to talk about about Johnny Depp but I'm far too self-important to join in with the other thread"

I'm with you somewhat. The fact is, NOBODY can do Freddie justice. The guy I like for the part is Gael Garcia Bernal of the Motorcycle Diaries(Che).

There are two very positive things about Depp:

1.) He's the biggest movie star on the planet today.

2.) He's as good an actor as anyone around his age and is willing to put it all on the line with his roles.


That being said, we should wait until it happens and he fails before doubting him. His track record is just too damn good to throw him aside.

Oh, you're most probably not the only one.

The problem is just the company you're in: most of them still walk on four legs and refuse to come down from the trees at any price.

I think Johnny Depp is a nice choice.
He is a talented actor, and he looks like Freddie quite a lot better than many others.

I think it's a good idea.


I'm going slightly mad
