DANIEL RADCLIFFE Believes He's The Wrong Person To Play FREDDIE MERCURY In New Biopic! - TOMORROW'S NEWS - The Latest Entertainment News Today!

Daniel Radcliffe has denied rumours that he will be replacing Sacha Baron Cohen as legendary QUEEN singer Freddie Mercury in a new biopic, insisting he is “completely wrong” for the role!

He tells Empire magazine:

“Everyone on the internet who I presume is saying I’m totally wrong for that part is correct. I AM completely wrong for that part!”

Radcliffe was linked to the role after ‘The Dictator‘ star, who was originally attached to star as Mercury since 2010, dropped out of the role earlier this year amid creative differences with the surviving members of QUEEN – who will produce the flick.

It’s rumoured that Baron Cohen wanted to make the movie grittier and warts-and-all, however Brian May and Roger Taylor want a more family-friendly film about Mercury, who died following complications with AIDs in 1991.

Taylor recently claimed Baron Cohen was dropped from the project because he and the other members of QUEEN were worried he would make the film too funny.
