Queen guitarist has some harsh words about Sacha Baron Cohen
Sacha Baron Cohen recently claimed he left the Freddie Mercury biopic in which he was set to star as the late Queen singer because the band wanted a PG-rated film with a happy ending.
But now, Queen guitarist Brian May is sharing the band’s side of the story.
Quote: “Sacha became an arse.”
May also claims Cohen didn’t quit; it was the band’s decision he wasn’t right for the role.
The bio-pic is continuing to be developed and they may have found their star: Ben Whishaw (“Q” in the latest ‘James Bond’ films).
“He’s fabulous,” May says, “a real actor.”
