Apple Store Soho Presents Meet the Actor: Rami Malek, "Mr. Robot"

It’s hard to remember a biopic with as many stops and starts as the movie about Freddie Mercury, but the signing of the newest actor stepping in to play Queen’s late frontman may make it a go for good this time. “Mr. Robot” star Rami Malek is officially on board to play Freddie in the movie, which will start shooting early next year.


Portraying the flamboyant, larger than life mercury will be quite a stark contrast to the socially stunted character he plays on “Mr. Robot”,…

,…though the quiet, reserved Freddie away from the limelight should be more seamless.

Regardless, something tells me it’s a stretch he will be able to pull off.

Thoughts on Malek playing this ‘lover of life and singer of songs’?
