I remember when it was supposed to be Sacha Baron Cohen who was gonna play Freddie. I was so upset that he dropped out, because I thought he would have been perfect. But now that I think of it, after seeing all the trailers, and just looking at his general vibe and mannerisms, I don't think they could have chosen a better Freddie Mercury than Rami Malek.

Jimmy always comes off as fake with his guests. "If I had your number I would have called you every day"... "you have my number". That's not even mentioning 6:03

I remember seeing an interview with Freddy, and you could tell he was very self-concious about his teeth. But it all melted away on stage! 🎤 Ever since I first saw him perform on TV when I was a little kid, I was blown away by his stage presence. A total legend. 🌟

I was at the premiere of the movie and I just have to say, absoultely one of the best performances, astonishing, outstanding job of Rami! This movie will absolutely ROCK YOU. So well made. It was incredible and so SO interesting to see how it all happened. The cast its just perfect and its goosebumps all the time. I think they really did a great job portraing the magic of Queen and payed omage to Freddie in the right way 💛👑 Rami is pure talent and I'm so proud of how far he's come

Everyone's talking about how it looks like Jimmy freaks out over Rami touching his hand at 6:03 but I think it's Jimmy's delayed reaction to spoiling the upside down piano scene. Plus they shake hands at 0:57 in.

6.04 😂 Rami has been throwing out all these cringey power moves in his interviews lately. 😆 He’s different from the old pre-Queen Rami. I think he knows he’s Oscar material now, he’s a big deal. Sorry but I will always remember the cute, awkward Rami in interviews, slipping up and talking about periods 😂
