Borat to Play Freddie Mercury in Queen Movie

British funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen, also known as Ali G, Borat and Bruno, is slated to play Freddie Mercury in an upcoming Queen biopic.

As you can see, the resemblance means this isn't much of a stretch. But will Sacha Baron Cohen really make a good Freddie Mercury?

I think so. That man can play some of the strangest, most unexpected roles I've ever seen. Sure, he can be racist and tasteless, but as far as acting goes, he might be able to do this role some justice since he can seemingly play any part he is given (or comes up with). Here's to hoping the Borat actor has a "Don't Stop Me Now" attitude about this project.
