You won’t believe how good Rami Malek looks as Freddie Mercury

Rami Malek looks fantastic as Freddie Mercury

Last month, we got our first official look at actor Rami Malek as legendary singer Freddie Mercury.

He’s playing Mercury in the upcoming film Bohemian Rhapsody from director Bryan Singer. The film covers 15 years of the band’s career, leading up to their 1985 performance at Live Aid.

Sacha Baron Cohen was once cast as Mercury, before he departed the project due to creative differences. Cohen wasn’t happy the film wasn’t going to explore more of Mercury’s life, including his struggles being HIV-positive.

However, Malek is now in the thick of filming and he’s won over a lot of people.

It is uncanny how much he resembles Mercury.

Singer took to Instagram to share a new photo of the star and it is nothing short of astonishing. On quick glance, one might even believe it is Mercury.

He also shared another photo last week of Queen member Brian May taking a photo of the actor playing him in the movie. Talk about a surreal moment.
