Daniel Radcliffe Laughs at Freddie Mercury Casting Rumors

RadcliffeYes, all the claims being made by the UK's Daily Star tabloid about Daniel Radcliffe playing Freddie Mercury were just that - claims.

Says Radcliffe:

"There is no truth to it at all,. It's one of those very, very funny things: it came out of a story in the Daily Star and then you see newspapers like The Guardian using The Star as their source, and it grows and grows [until] it's 'Dan Radcliffe is playing Freddie Mercury!', which I was never going to do. Everyone on the internet who I presume is saying I'm totally wrong for that part is correct. I AM completely wrong for that part!"

  1. Not surprised at all.

    I really would like to see a biopic of Freddie Mercury's life, but I'd LOVE to see it if Marc Martel would agree to play Mercury.

  2. The Daily Star is not a newspaper, just a cheap rag.

  3. So why did you report them so credulously?

  4. Yes, he's totally wrong for the part and totally awesome for readily admitting it.

  5. Though, put a big, permed wig on Radcliffe, and he could probably play young Brian May.
