See Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury in first pictures from Bohemian Rhapsody

Rami Malek, the star on “Mr. Robot,” is getting prepared for his portrayal of Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury in the upcoming biopic about the band, Bohemian Rhapsody. Entertainment Weekly shared the first look at him as Mercury today. See below. Malek said it was “a very affirming moment” when he first saw himself in hair and makeup. Sacha Baron Cohen was set to portray Mercury in 2010, but he eventually left the project over creative differences with Queen. Brian May later disputed Cohen’s claims. The film has been in production for almost a decade but is set to go to theaters in December 2018.
