Brit actor James Floyd keen to play young Freddie Mercury again
Washington: Anglo-Indian actor James Floyd is keen to reprise his role as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury for Sacha Baron-Cohen’s much-anticipated biopic.
The young star played the tragic singer, who died in 1991, in British Tv movie ‘The Best Possible Taste’, and he admits he has been approached to play young Mercury again in the new film project, Contactmusic reported.
He told Wenn that he actually met with the film company that is making the movie in Hollywood.
He said that he doesn’t know what part of Mercury’s life they’re doing.
“I’m pretty sure Sacha is still attached and he’s playing the older Freddie,” he said.
But Floyd hopes he isn’t asked to sing.
