    It's a shame too since he looks so much like him. Apparently the remaining members of Queen wanted more focus on the band and Sacha wanted to do an R-rated version of his life. Who do you think should play him now that Sacha has dropped out?

    Seth Rogen.

    He has the range to handle all of the sensitive issue which are sure to come out of a Freddie Mercury movie.

    I have a strong feeling this wasn't the first time a guy has pulled out of something related to Freddie Mercury.

    Fuck that! This is Howard's chance to take Hollywood by storm. He was "amazing" in Private Parts. Just ask him and every star that comes on the show to kiss his ass. There isn't another actor talented enough to handle this material. And as we know with his relationship with Ralph, Howard isn't afraid to simulate sex with guys.

    Not bad, I'd have to see him with a mustache though lol. I've heard Johnny Depp's name being thrown around, he's an interesting choice. Too bad about Sacha, he really resembled Freddie Mercury.

    Howard wants to be the stunt-as during the gay sex scenes.
    Jonah Falcon will be the stunt cock and Ralph the fluffer.

    Good call. Only problem is that Howard's new teeth are bigger than Freddie Mercury's.

    Dude looks nothing like him and he's a midget compared to Freddie. Sacha or nobody.
