If the band Queen's life were to be made a movie, which actors would you like to portray the band members?

I got into this conversation with some friends, and this topic started.I thought it would be great if they did something like that. After wards, we were thinking of actors who could play each band member (especially someone open minded enough to play Freddie).


I was thinking Joaquin Phoenix also, but Johnny Depp might be good. But I dont only want to hear about Freddie, I want to hear about the other members.

Here's a picture of them:


From left is Roger Taylor (drummer), Brian May (Guitar), Freddie (vocal), and John Deacon (Bass)

Update 2:

shuggoth-Ted Cassidy is dead

Update 3:

I somehow saw Elijah Wood as Roger Taylor because they have the same serious eyes. Elijah is cute, but doesnt seem to have a sexy style Roger has.

Update 4:

Oh yeah, I remember we said we love to see James McAvoy as Roger or John.

Update 5:

Oh yeah, I remember we said we love to see James McAvoy as Roger or John.

    actually, I think this movie is already in production, and Johnny Depp is Freddy Mercury.

    this is a really interesting question. i don't know anything about any member of Queen other than Freddy Mercury, so i can only really talk about him.

    joaquin phoenix did a good job with the whole music thing as Cash, but i don't think he's eccentric and wild enough to play Mercury. Billy Crudup might be good. i can't really think of anyone.

    who did you and your friends cast as Freddy?

    I'd like to see Freddie Mercury played by Ted Cassidy.
