Actor Sacha Baron Cohen aka Borat is slated to play Freddie Mercury in a film biopic of the former Queen frontman’s life. The brilliant and talented Mercury died in 1991 from AIDS. We hear the Oscar/Golden Globes buzz circulating already. Hey, it wouldn’t be the first time an actor portraying a singer was honored in the past few years. It’s been known to happen once or twice.
