"Borat" star Sacha Baron Cohen is set to play flamboyant rocker Freddie Mercury in a dramatic feature focusing on his glory days as the frontman of Queen, its producers said on Thursday.

Aside from the fact that Cohen can pull off almost anything - well, that "Bruno" movie was crap but he set out to push some boundaries.  When he makes his "Ali G" movie it will be crazy successful.

Until then, take a look at them side-by-side.   I expect Cohen will nail it.
