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!”
