Sacha Baron Cohen aka Borat has signed on to play late Freddie Mercury in a biopic about the Queen lead singer. Reportedly, Sacha beat out Johnny Depp for the role. The film will chronicle Freddie's rise to fame and his hard partying up to his death in 1991 due to complications from AIDS.
A source said, "Film makers are working flat out to get the best possible script. Sacha loves the idea he can get away with playing Freddie after modeling Borat's look on him."
Sacha does have the body hair for the role, that's for sure. This mess could possibly work out.
Richard Simmons could play Brian May and Chloe Sevigny has just enough busted gay face to play Roger Taylor.
