Casting Couch: Sacha Baron Cohen Will Play Freddie Mercury

It's been a town-wide rumor that there was a Queen movie in the works, but now it's confirmed that Sacha Baron Cohen will star as Freddie Mercury. The movie will be produced by GK Films and scribe Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon) will write the biopic. We've seen Sacha Baron Cohen sing in Sweeney Todd, and sing well, so we can't wait to see if he will rock Freddie Mercury on the big screen. (Deadline)
