Sasha Baron Cohen Getting Rolled

March 31, 2015 | celebrity | matt-ralston | 0 Comments

The Freddie Mercury biopic starring Sasha Baron Cohen has been officially called off. Most everyone involved in the production characterized Cohen as an indolent diva much to the surprise of everybody who has never met anybody successful in the entertainment industry before. On Thursday, Queen’s manager Jim Beach appeared to resuscitate hope for the project:

“We have now managed to persuade Sacha Baron Cohen to write, produce and direct this movie, and he has also agreed to star.”

Major news outlets ran with this as fact because first hand information is slightly more worthwhile than the gibberish laden tweets they normally use as source. In truth, Beach was making fun of Cohen because his desire to control the project ultimately led to him being fired. Surviving Queen member Brian May took a pot shot at some of Cohen’s recent work which he is lobbying to get into the Smithsonian:

“In the end we felt his presence in the movie would be very distracting. What led us to that conclusion was the last three movies that he’s made. The Dictator, Les Miserables, and Hugo.” 

You look like a super famous singer who died from The AIDS. Show up topless in suspenders, go through the motions and you’ll be taking home a certain Oscar. It’s always unfortunate when people let ego get in the way of what is sure to be a mediocre cynical money grab. The trailer could have been amazing.
