Entertainment Weekly has shared the first look at Freddie Mercury from the upcoming biopic about his life. Little is known about the film at this point, beyond the title: Bohemian Rhapsody. The film’s IMDB page contains only sparse snippets of information, calling it a “A chronicle of the years leading up to Queen’s legendary appearance at the Live Aid (1985) concert in 1985.” The page also lists some of the key actors.

Our first question (and likely yours) was… who in the world can hope to portray Freddie Mercury?! The larger-than-life vocal force who inspired and captivated audiences was undeniably unique. His eccentric appearance and mannerisms added to the aura of star power that surrounded him. In this upcoming film, he will be played by Egyptian-American actor Rami Malek.

There’s a solid chance you’ve seen Rami’s work, even if the name doesn’t immediately ring a bell. He has received a primetime Emmy award and a critics’ choice award for his work on the USA Network program Mr. Robot. He also appeared in the Night at the Museum movie series, the HBO miniseries The Pacific, and The Twilight Series: Breaking Dawn Part 2. With several smaller guest roles on various shows like Gilmore Girls24, and Medium, as well as voice roles in animated shows and video games, Rami certainly has experience acting.

So now the biggest question is: does he LOOK like Freddie?
