Daniel Radcliffe on Freddie Mercury Casting Rumor: 'There's No Truth to It At All'


Daniel Radcliffe


The 'Kill Your Darlings' star says, 'Everyone on the internet who I presume is saying I'm totally wrong for that part is correct.'

Rumor suggesting that Daniel Radcliffe will replace Sacha Baron Cohen in an untitled Freddie Mercury biopic is not true. Denying the casting report is the "Harry Potter" actor himself. "There is no truth to it at all," so he says.

"Everyone on the internet who I presume is saying I'm totally wrong for that part is correct," Radcliffe tells Empire Podcast. "I AM completely wrong for that part!"

"If I'd seen a rumour about me playing Iggy Pop, I'd think, 'Hey, I'd have a go at that - that'd be fun!', but Freddie Mercury? No. I don't even know who the director is. They seem to be saying it's Stephen Frears and Tom Hooper on the internet," he adds.

"This is the kind of thing that happens to me and it happens to Emma (Watson) with multiple Fifty Shades of Grey things," he continues voicing his thoughts. "When somebody has column inches to fill, they just sub in one of our names."

Cohen left the biopic about Queen's late frontman due to creative differences. He was said envisioning it to be a gritty R-rated look at the life of the rocker, but the band's remaining members allegedly wanted it to be a PG one.
