Rami Malek on Playing Freddie Mercury in Upcoming Queen Biopic
Bohemian Rhapsody hits theaters November 2.
Rami Malek -- the actor who plays Freddie Mercury in the upcoming Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody -- was recently on Jimmy Kimmel Live sharing what it was like to play Queen's frontman.
When asked why he thinks he got picked to play Mercury's character, he answered,
I think a lot of it had to do with the jawline. Because he does have a very austere jaw line."
Malek continues to share that he wore fake teeth for the movie to perfectly reflect Mercury's teeth and sound:
Not many people know this, but Freddie Mercury as a kid was called 'Bucky.'"
He goes on to share what the first day of filming with the remaining members of Queen there watching was like; a prank he pulled on the actor playing Queen's drummer Roger Taylor; and meeting Mercury's sister.
