Daniel Radcliffe is becoming quite the gay icon since being named the highest paid actor in Hollywood.
Despite being allegedly heterosexual, the former Harry Potter star has earned his LGBT stripes in the last few years by completing the Gay Fantasy Trifecta: Appearing fully nude for a role, starring on Broadway, and portraying a gay character in film.
He earned some bonus points by shooting a gay sex scene as Allen Ginsburg in Kill Your Darlings, but it may not be his last! According to reports, Radcliffe is so great at serving gayface, he’s been offered the role of another legendary gay icon, Queen frontman Freddie Mercury!
It’s true! The producers of Mercury’s upcoming biopic are searching for a new leading man after comedy king Sacha Baron Cohen quit the film earlier this year. According to Deadline, Cohen believed the biopic “watered down” Mercury and didn’t show enough of his characteristic flamboyance, so he walked off set citing “creative differences.”
Sources tell the Daily Star that “Daniel has been told the part is his if he wants it,” and the role would reward him with the “biggest pay day since he played Harry Potter in the successful movies.”
Forget money! Just think of all the hot, gay ass he could get after the premiere!
