Here's Who Will Play Queen In 'Bohemian Rhapsody'
We found out Monday who will play the members of legendary rock band Queen in the forthcoming biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.
British actors Ben Hardy and Gwilym Lee have been cast as drummer Roger Taylor and guitarist Brian May respectively, while American actor Joseph Mazzello will portray bassist John Deacon.
They join Rami Malek, who was previously announced as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, in the film directed by Bryan Singer.
Hardy, 26, previously worked with Singer on the Montreal-shot flick X-Men: Apocalypse (he played Archangel). Lee, 33, has a string of TV credits in Britain and Mazzello, also 33, has appeared in films like G.I. Joe: Retaliation and The Social Network.
According to the official Queen website, “the detail on the band that the film company is going into is quite staggering” because Queen archivist Greg Brooks is involved in the project.
The site said production of the film is scheduled to begin “very, very soon.”
