    Default Depp to portray Freddie Mercury?

    Talk is that Robert Deniro's production company is working on a movie about rock band Queen and that Depp is in the lead to play the flamboyant former singer.
    'Old Van Halen, when I was in it-classic Van Halen-makes you wanna drink, dance and screw, right? And the new Van Halen encourages you to drink milk, drive a Nissan and have a relationship.' - David Lee Roth.

    I bet the title of the movie will be called "The Show Must Go On."

    Queen guitarist Brian May is backing Johnny Depp to play late frontman Freddie Mercury in an upcoming biopic. May says, "Discussions are at an early stage. Johnny Depp is fantastic. He would be a worthy counterpart for Freddie on screen."

    The surviving members of the band - May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon - are all involved in the project which will tell the life story of the singer, who died of an AIDS-related illness in 1991.

    ----

    Sounds like nothing is official just yet. God knows I love Johnny, but he doesn't look much like Freddie. Val Kilmer looked so much like Jim Morrison it was amazing. But you never know! A haircut and mustache... hmmm...

    Yep, it is amazing what some makeup and wigs can do.

    Depp would be great at playing Mercury.

    Johnny Depp would be unreal in that role. The guy is by far one of the greatest actors out there today....

    since the band is behind the project... I am all for it. Queen was some of the best songwriters ever in pop-rock music. Freddy was one of a kind and I would love to see a movie of his life.

    The right hair/makeup, he'd be perfect. Obviously he could pull it off from an acting standpoint. I'd actually go to the theater to see that, and I haven't been in 2-3 years.

    I'm convinced Depp could play a 57 Chevy. The man just rocks in every movie I've seen him in. Awesome choice.

    You know what? I spoke too soon. Seeing the two side-by-side has convinced me. Johnny can morph into just about anything. Bring on the false teeth! It wouldn't be the first time!

    Nice to see some guys showing some respect for his talent. Johnny has certainly convinced people that even tho he's gorgeous, he CAN ACT! He'll get an Oscar one day.

    One would hope, but they'll probably go with "We Are The Champions" or "Bohemian Raphsody". "We Will Rock You" is taken by the show in Vegas, yes?

    "Play The Game" might be a good one. "Sheer Heart Attack"? "Crazy Little Thing"?

    "Under Pressure"?????????
