Sacha Baron Cohen was heart-set to play the late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in a bio pic on the musician, but the remaining members of the band, who have script and director approval, didn’t see eye-to-eye with the actor over content. So, sadly, Cohen has pulled out of the project. Seems the band wants to make a PG movie about Queen, while Cohen had in mind an R-rated tell-all centered around the gay singer, making him more… mercurial. It’s going to be hard to find another actor who has the chops to portray Freddie Mercury, and also bears such an astonishingly strong resemblance. Cohen had brought in various writers and directors, including David Fincher and Tom Hooper, to develop it for him. None were approved. (via deadlinehollywood)

He remains on X Factor UK for another week to dazzle us with his flamboyancy and I can’t wait. This week Rylan Clark was supposed to be “scaling it back” and allegedly, that’s what he did. You be the judge. I want to live on his planet for just one day. Love him.
