Daniel Radcliffe to Play Freddie Mercury?

Radcliffe

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."

Daniel Radcliffe Struts Out an American Accent in First 'Horns' Clip: VIDEO

The most startling thing about this first clip from Horns isn't that Daniel Radcliffe is looking down the barrel of a rifle, or that he's got two horns protruding from his forehead. It's hearing him speak in that American accent.

How Daniel Radcliffe Looks When He's Shirtless and Horny: VIDEO

Two Daniel Radcliffe items in one post. First, some new shots are available from Horns, which premieres at the Toronto Film Festival tomorrow (we already saw one shot almost a year ago).

Writes EW, where you can find two more stills:

In Horns, a supernatural mystery that premieres tomorrow at the Toronto Film Festival, Radcliffe plays Ig, a small-time guy who’s suspected of brutally murdering his longtime girlfriend (Juno Temple). The town seems to have made up its mind about his guilt, especially when he begins to sprout devilish horns while the police investigate the crime. Before long, though, Ig notices that his frightful horns seem to have one beneficial side-effect: people around him suddenly seem compelled to tell him the truth, the horrible truth that they’ve never told anyone else. Just maybe, those horns of his will help him find out who really committed the murder.

There's also yet another trailer (this, the official domestic) for the film Kill Your Darlings, in which Radcliffe plays the young beat poet Allen Ginsberg. The film opens in limited release on October 18.

Check that out, AFTER THE JUMP...
