i think they should have 2 different actor for freddie. 1 for the black fingernails and long hair freddie. the other for tan mustache freddie. they can use the same mustache freddie actor to play the third freddie the 45 yer old with no mustache. that would be best because even his voice changed over the years

I want an ENGLISHMAN to play Freddie! He loved England, and he had the accent. it would be a shame to leave out such an important part of him x

Sorry, but I want an ENGLISHMAN to play Freddie! He had the accent, and he loved England. It would be a shame to leave out such a big part of him x

Wesley Claggett to play Freddie Mercury
He is going to kill it, he can sing and looks just like him.

Claggett is the perfect choice. The role would be a definite challenge for any actor, but he'll be a credible Freddie -- no, make that an incredible Freddie. He has the FM look but, more importantly, he is a great singer and can act. Can't wait to see the finished product so America can meet a new star. (And no, I am not his agent...just a huge fan.)

i have thought for years of a freddie mercury film, but my idea was about his love for his `mary`and also finaly for `jim`, i feel a "love of my life" film would be more fitting for a quiet and personal man, and as for an actor to play,should be russel brand..if i had the money i would produce the film myself.

I just started following up on Wesley Claggett. He is a rocking musician, I think the Freddie Mercury role would work for him.
incase you haven't hear his music you can check out one of his bands, Siri Dyal

Plus I head that a new album is in the works.
Don't know if you know this but Claggett's band Siri Dyal sold over 150,000 cd's in Japan two years ago!
