Rami Malek Is So Perfect as Freddie Mercury That It’s Damn Near Giving Me a Heart Attack. Here’s a Photo.

Couldn’t help myself and had to post this iPhone pic

I’ll be able to weather the goings-on in this mad, tumultuous world, so long as I have access to images of Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury. That’s basically what’s getting me through the day these days.

Fresh from the set of Bohemian Rhapsody, the upcoming biopic of glam-rock legends, Queen, director Bryan Singer posted the above image to his Instagram, which he apparently took on his iPhone. We damn near fell to pieces over the first image that was released of Malek as Mercury, but it’s awesome to get a wider “action shot” of Mercury in performance mode, and Malek seems to have the mannerisms down!

As reported by Collider, the film “covers the year leading up to their legendary appearance at Live Aid in 1985,” and co-stars Ben Hardy (X-Men: Apocalypse) as Roger Taylor, Gwilym Lee as Brian May, and Joseph Mazzello as John Deacon, with Littlefinger himself Aidan Gillen playing Queen’s manager John Reid.

Meanwhile, if they want to keep releasing photos of Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, say, I don’t know, forever, I’d be totally okay with that.

Will you be checking out Bohemian Rhapsody when it drops on Christmas of next year?
