Who didn’t love Sascha Cohen as Borat. Or when he brought to life Bruno we all thought that Cohen was the star template for early Lady Gaga, because he gave her something to copy, long before she ever was mega famous. There was really no difference between what Gaga and Sacha both were doing. Playing black people? Oh wait! that was Beyonce and Jay-Z, that same year.
My point is, while critics lambast Lady Gaga for following Madonna‘s star template a bit too much, I say what about her Bruno trainer pop star wheels as well? Baron Cohen never got enough credit for that. And if Baron Cohen ever played Lady Gaga - you know that would be the end of her, so it’s kind he wants to play Freddie. He supports America’s younger generation. That’s too awesomery to see him operate.
Bad jokes aside, and on a serious note the post reports that. “Sacha Baron Cohen has been tapped to play Freddie Mercury in a biopic based on the Queen frontman who died of AIDS in 1991.
The shock-comic certainly bears a physical resemblance to Mercury, a fact that Entertainment Weekly also mentions. I also must note that Cohen’s got the chest hair for the part as well.” But it all rests on whether Cohen will sing Freddie’s songs himself, or lip sync to Freddie’s tracks. Maybe he can do a Britney–oh, that’s exactly what he’ll do. Studio tracks, with a lip sync for the film of himself.
Anyway, here’s a video clip of Sacha singing the Kazakhstan national anthem and a picture of Sam Elliott because Baron Cohen and Mercury look like the same person, but clearly Sam looks like, well–Sam Elliott. The same as he always has been, so let’s go with that today as no one else has in blog land. Enjoy Sacha’s musical and performance artist? talent and humor, below.
