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!"

Daniel Radcliffe to Play Freddie Mercury?


The role of Freddie Mercury in a biopic once attached to Sacha Baron Cohen is Daniel Radcliffe's is he wants it, according to UK tabloid The Daily Star:

MercuryBorat star Sacha Baron Cohen, 41, quit the biopic project this summer following clashes over the script with band members Brian May, 66, and Roger Taylor, 64.

But now producers are keen to bag Radcliffe, 24, and are prepared to offer him big money to tempt him to play the gay singer, whose string of hits included camp rock anthem I Want To Break Free.

If he takes the part, Hollywood insiders predict it will be the actor’s biggest pay day since he played Harry Potter in the successful movies.

“Plus, he’s closer in height to Freddie than Sacha, who’s much taller. Daniel can really sing, too.”

The tabloid also claims that producers are impressed with Radcliffe's Kill Your Darlings performance as gay beat poet Allen Ginsberg, and say that Baren Cohen dropped out because the characterization of Mercury wasn't flamboyant enough in the script for him.

Daniel Radcliffe Banned from Manscaping for Gay Sex Scene - VIDEO

In his role as Allen Ginsburg in the soon-to-be-released Kill Your Darlings, Daniel Radcliffe was banned by the director from manscaping in order to preserve the natural aesthetic of the 1940s. Director John Krokidas was in Toronto to premier the film at the Toronto International Film Festival last week when he sat down with The Daily Extra, to discuss the hairy details. 

Radcliffe also spoke about the gay sex scene, and all the attention it's been getting, with MTV at the Sundance Film Festival:

"It's interesting that it's deemed shocking," Radcliffe said. "For me, there's something very strange about that because we see straight sex scenes all the time. We've seen gay sex scenes before. I don't know why a gay sex scene should be any more shocking than a straight sex scene. Or both of them are equally un-shocking."
