Daniel Radcliffe has been linked with a role playing Freddie Mercury in a new big screen biopic. 'Borat' star Sacha Baron Cohen had been first choice to play the 'Queen' frontman, but he pulled out earlier this year after disagreements over the movie's tone and direction. Reaction to the news about Radcliffe stepping in has not been positive, with people saying he'd be totally wrong for the part. And it looks like Daniel agrees! Speaking to 'Empire', he said that he hasn't spoken to anyone about it and, yes, he would be the wrong guy. The 'Harry Potter' star thinks the story came from the British Newspaper 'The Daily Star', and says he can't believe how out of hand these kinds of stories can get. One film you can see him in, is the romantic drama 'Kill Your Darlings', hitting cinemas in October. Credit: Cover Media
