    I like this a lot! I just wonder if he can pull off a serious drama. No doubt he can character act.

    I think he'll be very good. Although his past roles have been comedies, you have to admit that he has the ability to completely transform himself.

    I'm looking forward to it. I wonder if they'll make false teeth?

    That would be funny and all, but kind of insulting to Freddy's legacy. :\ I'm not optimistic about this, and I'm not even really a Queen fan at all. (Respect and appreciate their body of work, the music's just not my thing.)

    I'm pretty certain if anyone could do it, it's Sasha Baron Cohen.

    Dude I so love the 70s

    If I were alive in the 70s, my favorite bands would've been Deep Purple, Rush, Led Zeppelin, and Queen.

    I love Queen's music. LOVE Queen's music. So I'm pretty excited to see this movie. Hopefully it'll be pretty good.

    I love Queen and Freddie Mercury is one of the greatest singers in rock and roll history.

    Sasha Baron Cohen is definitely great at acting. Sure, he's only been in comedies, but if he gets serious and really gets into the roles, I'm sure he could do a great job playing Freddie Mercury. He's really good at that kind of stuff.

    With that said, even if he does a great job playing Freddie, that doesn't necessarily mean it'll be a good movie. Hopefully it is, though.
