Best. Casting. Ever.

OMG, have you heard the news that Sascha Baron Cohen (the Borat guy) is going to play Freddie Mercury in the movie about Queen?! 

I. Am.  So.  Excited about this!  Like more excited than I was to eat gourmet cupcakes.  Like, crazy, out of my mind, excited.  Like, Glee Live concert, excited.

Queen is one of my most favorite bands ever, and I think SBC is the perfect person to play Freddie.  Filming won't start until next year, but I will be counting down the days until it premieres.

Are you with me?!?!  I'm picturing the opening day audience to be fabulously flambouyant and covered in glitter, leather, or meat.  Guess which one I'll be wearing.

And to my husband, who claims that SBC is the wrong person to play Freddie, because SBC is too tall....?  Are you high?  Whatswrongwitchu?  Go back to listening to RUSH, and don't poop on my parade.

I agree with you: perfect casting. I didn't even know they were making a movie about Queen. Interesting! I wonder if SBC will sing at all.

I agree that the casting is perfect. But I won't be seeing it because I loathe and detest Sascha Baron Cohen.

peewee, I won't defriend or hit you. But I may include a Queen mixtape in your birthday gift.

Karen, I totally respect that some people have strong opinions about SBC. But the desire to see him perform "Don't Stop Me Now" or "Under Pressure" is too great.
