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???

GTFO!

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!

Sacha Baron Cohen Wants To Break Free Of Freddy Mercury Biopic!

| Filed under: Film FlickersSacha Baron Cohen

With the future Queen having just given birth to the royal baby, there's another Queen that doesn't have a future at all anymore.

That's right, Sacha Baron Cohen has dropped out of the Freddy Mercury biopic film due to creative differences with the living members of the rock group.

Perhaps the Dictator felt a little dictated to after the band members wanted a more PG story about Queen whereas Sacha wanted a more gritty, darker version. The band also failed to approve his choice for a writer and options for potential directors.

Sounds like he was seriously "unddaaah presshaaa" if he had to say "will you let me go" to Queen!

Oh well! Looks like Sacha will have to carry on as if nothing really matters to him. (Cue: wind chime + gong)

Isla Fisher Has The Blues At The Vanity Fair Oscar Party!

oscars 2013 isla fisher vanity fair red carpet 4

Isla Fisher might've gone nude for the Golden Globes, but she definitely added some color for the Oscars!

Taking a fashion hue cue from Reese Witherspoon earlier in the night, Isla opted for a cobalt blue Monique Lhuillier dress for the Vanity Fair party.

Mrs. Sacha Baron Cohen doused herself with some David Webb jewelry and added a black and gold clutch to complete her ensem.

We thought she looked lovely, but wished she did something a little more glamorous with her hair.

What about U???
