      You think a story in the Daily Star – Britain’s trashiest tabloid – quoting “an unnamed source” is reliable?
      That’s like quoting something you saw in the National Enquirer.
      Maybe they’ve got a scoop here, but why not check with his agent if it’s true?

      Daniel Radcliffe has proven himself to be a multi-talented, versatile, high quality actor/performer. He would be a great Freddy Mercury though I’m not sure he could pull off the stache.

      How would he pull this off? Isn’t he only about half the size of Freddie Mercury? He’s probably no taller than Brian May’s hairdo.
      Loving that fierce trail, though.

      I just don’t see it, and here’s coming from someone who really, really likes him. Also like someone said above, it’s from The Daily Star, probably the closest thing Britain has got to National Enquirer.

      Really? He’s a lightweight at best. Freddie’s deserves much better. He doesn’t have to be a big name, but a substantial actor would be nice.

      @pauleky: Radcliffe is no lightweight! He is considered one of the most talented young actors of his generation. How did you come up with that comment? Have you ever heard of Bing or Google? (lol)

      We need like one gay person to play a gay figure in history just ONCE please. Radcliffe is insufferable, why select him when it could be someone like Zachary Quinto or something?

      @Pistolo: Or, you know, they could also consider casting an asian actor, considering he was both gay AND south asian.

      I can’t wait to see lil’ harry in Freddy’s hip huggers. From the treasure trail, it appears we might be in for some harry arse delights.

      I say pick Ben Affleck, that would get him away from the (doomed to fail Batman).
      On a serious note, why not Zac Effron? He is soon to emerge from rehab and just might have the chops to pull it off. Plus, his “trail” is just as dreamy as Daniel’s lovelane!

      People seem to have forgotten that Freddie Mercury was ethnically Gujarati. I’m not sure it’s right to have someone so waspy play an Indian. They’re whitewashing rock history.

      @Pistolo: Stephen Fry played Oscar Wilde in a well received movie.

      Tom Hardy would be a good fit. What would be difficult is finding somebody with a body fit that can also hit Freddie’s incredible high range.

      Oh look! The Daily Star made this story up – just like I warned…
