Time was that an entertainment writer would have raised all the eyebrows at Mr. Robot star Rami Malek being cast as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, but luckily that time has passed. Now we can’t get enough behind-the-scenes images of Malek, like the one shared to Instagram by director Bryan Singer on Monday night.
Malek is full immersed in filming Bohemian Rhapsody, a biopic about the band’s escapades before Mercury’s death, and he looks so right for the part we could just break into song.
Bohemian Rhapsody releases in 2018.
