The long-rumored biopic on Freddie Mercury is set to be released in 2018 and during an interview with NME, Adam Lambert shared his favor for the film’s lead actor Rami Malek.


Lambert revealed that he never considered playing the iconic Queen frontman and says that actor Malek (Mr. Robot) is perfect for the film, which will be directed by Bryan Singer (The Usual Suspects).
“I don’t think I would be up for taking that one,” Lambert says of playing the role of Mercury. “I mean, that’s a whole other level. I really love singing the songs that Freddie sang on stage, but I also approach it by doing it as me. I don’t know if I would be able to impersonate Freddie. I’m really excited about the guy that they’ve cast in the role for the film – he’s amazing. The gentlemen from Mr. Robot, Rami Malek.”
Lambert added that he thinks Malek is going to be “amazing” in the role.

I think Rami looks well-suited for the part of Freddie. Hope the film comes off well. As I said, I'd love to see Adam get a little part in the film, just to show that he has a connection with Queen. Don't think it will happen, but I can dream!

Rami was on Colbert last night. Interesting guy. Eccentric. He'll make an intriguing Freddie. They talked about the film and about him jeering get Brian and Roger.

haha... Dee R Gee... I've got one of those keyboards, too.

Maybe Adam could get a "cameo" in the movie... that might be nice.

I read that actor Johnny Flynn is playing Roger (Taylor) in the movie. He's in "Genius" (the life story of Albert Einstein) with Geoffrey Rush - Johnny the young Einstein & Geoffrey as Einstein in his latter years - wonderful series & splendid acting - well worth seeing.
