Footage of Rami Malek Performing as Freddie Mercury is Awesome

"Buster's Mal Heart" Premiere - 2017 Tribeca Film Festival

The movie has been in the works for awhile and it was originally supposed star Sacha Baron Cohen as Freddie Mercury. Well, that ran into a snag. You had the remaining members of Queen complaining that the movie was going to end when Freddie Mercury dies. I’m a huge Queen fan, but for a movie like this, the story ends with Freddie Mercury.

Long story short, Sacha Baron Cohen is out and Rami Malek is in. You might not be very familiar with Rami Malek, but he’s in the hit TV show Mr. Robot on USA. I remember seeing him on the short lived show on Fox called The War at Home with Michael Rapaport. And until I started writing this I could have sworn the show had Donal Logue, but I was being mistaken for the show Ground for Life.

Anyway, we now have some footage of Malek reenacting the infamous Queen Live Aid performance.
