THE British actor is reportedly in talks to star in the biopic of the Queen frontman, according to Latino Review.
Following Sacha Baron Cohen’s departure from the project last summer, producers on the Freddie Mercury biopic continue their search for a new leading man. A rumour last month suggested that Daniel Radcliffe would portray the rock star, who died in 1991, but speculation was quickly cut short by Radcliffe himself.
Dominic Cooper is the latest name to enter the rumour mill. Propelled to fame by Mamma Mia!, the actor is better known today for his portrayal of Iron Man’s father in Captain America.
No official reports have confirmed his involvement in the Freddie Mercury project for the time being, but rumours continue to swirl. If he is tapped for the role, producers will need approval of this casting choice from the surviving members of Queen. – AFP Relaxnews
