The Actor Playing Freddie Mercury Could Be His Clone!


The first picture of actor Rami Malek as the late, great Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in the upcoming biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” has been released, and we had to do a double take to make sure we weren't being pranked.

As you can see, the actor bears an uncanny resemblance to Freddie as shown in this exclusive picture released by Entertainment Weekly.

It's been revealed that Malek will also be contributing some of his own signing to the performances that will feature in the film.

Apparently Mercury’s voice will also make appearances with “a sound alike filling in the gaps.”

Malek told Entertainment Weekly: “I’m in Abbey Road [Studios] right now if that should say anything to you. I’m not working on my acting.”


How Malek will sound is anyone's guess, but considering how he's channeled Freddie's appearance we reckon he will nail the vocals as well.

“Bohemian Rhapsody,” will follow Mercury from the early ’70s to the mid-’80s and will be released at Christmas next year.
