Daniel Radcliffe Agrees He’s Not The Right Actor To Portray Rock Icon Freddie Mercury

450px-Daniel_Radcliffe,_2011There is no truth to it at all. It’s one of those very, very funny things: it came out of a story in the Daily Star and then you see newspapers like The Guardian using The Star as their source, and it grows and grows [until] it’s ‘Dan Radcliffe is playing Freddie Mercury!’, which I was never going to do… Everyone on the internet who I presume is saying I’m totally wrong for that part is correct. I AM completely wrong for that part!”


— Daniel Radcliffe speaking with EmpireOnline and shooting down rumors he’s already been offered the role of legendary Queen vocalist Freddie Mercury in an upcoming film biography

      Don’t you have to be strait in order to play a gay character? Sort of an unwritten rule in Hollywood.

      I did try to warn you if it was in the Daily Star – quoting an “unnamed source” – it was probably made up…

      Regardless, I hope they make the movie, less the watering down of Freddie.
