    I saw that article. I think he'll do a phenomenal job.
     
  3. He looks a bit like Freddie Mercury and he's smart and talented. Interesting.

    Could be good.
     
  5. I saw that. He's good but I think the role is a better fit for Jemaine Clement.

    I can totally see it working. Plus, if you saw the recent remake of Sweeney Todd, you know Sacha can actually sing a lot like Freddie!

    For as many comedic roles as he does, I think he really has potential here.

    I'm game for a Queen movie.

    I'm not a Jamie Foxx fan but thought he did a very good job of not annoying me as Ray.
