Eddie Murphy. He has the same kind of hyperactiveness as Freddie which I think is more important than just the looks. Unfortunatly he is a bit too old. Also he failed to get into that character acting thing so far, so I doubt he would be the right one...
So much about people *not* playing Freddie Mercury.
Guy Pearce could have the acting qualities. I am not sure about his on stage performance but for th calm moments he could be right. Also Christian Bale would be able to capture the mysterious something one gets a glimpse of when Freddie is talking in interviews.
Liest das denn keiner außer mir?
