Above - Cohen as Borat
Sacha Baron Cohen is reportedly in talks to play Freddie Mercury in a film about the late Queen singer's life.
The Borat star is said to have replaced Johnny Depp as the frontrunner for the role.
Mercury earned a reputation as one of rock's most charismatic live performers before dying in 1991 of an AIDS-related illness.
An insider told The Mirror: "Filmmakers are working flat out to get the best possible script. Sacha loves the idea he can get away with playing Freddie after modelling Borat's look on him."
