Daniel Radcliffe Set To Replace Sacha Baron Cohen In Freddie Mercury Biopic?!

Could Harry Potter be playing the coveted role of gay rocker legend Freddie Mercury?!

Harry Potter could be playing THE iconically flamboyant Queen rocker on film???


Daniel Radcliffe is the latest name to come out of the casting rumor mill for the Freddie Mercury biopic, allegedly putting producers under his wizardly spell!

While we have no official confirmation he's set to star, a source close to the project revealed:

“Daniel has been told the part is his if he wants it. Despite his youth, Daniel impressed movie bosses with his portrayal of gay poet Allen Ginsburg in this year’s movie Kill Your Darlings. Plus, he’s closer in height to Freddie than Sacha, who’s much taller. Daniel can really sing, too.”

Borat actor, Sacha Baron Cohen, quit the movie this summer following script conflicts with the living members of the band…

But now, producers really like the idea of Danny playing the part, and are prepared to offer him big money to make it happen!

Would you just die to see HP singing rock classics like Bohemian Rhapsody and We Are The Champions?!

We need to make this rumor a reality ASAP!

    Can we please just stop this story right now. Dan has spoken to Empire magazine and told how this is NOT true at all - please google it.

    Freddie Mercury - sorry love Daniel but don't think he can pull that role off. Who can?
    Not going to be easy casting that one.

    No, just no! Daniel Radcliffe is very talented but he's not Freddie Mercury.
