Rami Malek rocks as Freddie Mercury in ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’

LOS ANGELES---Rami Malek did it. The Freddie Mercury role he passionately pursued is done. And the verdict? He absolutely rocks as the Queen's flamboyant lead singer in "Bohemian Rhapsody."   Onstage and off, but especially when he's performing the Queen's rock anthems, Rami succeeds in capturing the dynamism and stage presence of Freddie. Especially in the film's recreation of the band's rousing performance in "Live Aid." The film begins and ends with that 1985 benefit concert at the Wembley Stadium.   Chronicling the years from the Queen's formation to "Live Aid," "Bohemian Rhapsody" also dramatizes Freddie's relationship with his family, bisexuality (his love...Keep on reading: Rami Malek rocks as Freddie Mercury in ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.....»»

A rockin’ chat with Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor before the Globes

LOS ANGELES---On a rainy late afternoon---the day before the Golden Globe Awards where "Bohemian Rhapsody," the Queen biopic, romped off with the best picture-drama honors---we interviewed the band's legendary original members, Brian May and Roger Taylor.   Lead guitarist Brian, whose mountain of curls is now silver, tends to be the bemused of the duo and often added "Yeah" to Roger's answers. Drummer and occasional vocalist Roger was more loquacious.   The following day, Rami Malek, who played Brian and Roger's iconic lead singer Freddie Mercury, won the best actor-drama Globe.   The following are excerpts from our chat with Brian (B) and Roger (R) a...Keep on reading: A rockin’ chat with Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor before the Globes.....»»

Malek on Mercury: He had the kind of voice that could only come from the heavens

Rami Malek knew he had his work cut out for him when he was tapped to portray Freddie Mercury, the lead vocalist of Queen, in the biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody." When we told Rami during our recent one-on-one chat with him that he was just as uniquely idiosyncratic as Mercury, he thanked us, but said that even he found the task initially daunting.   "Freddie was larger than life," he quipped. "He was exceptional at what he did for a living. He was very unique---from the way he played the piano to the way he moved onstage. It's a talent that can never be emulated, nor should it be. He had the kind of voice that could only come from the heavens."   How did he manage t...Keep on reading: Malek on Mercury: He had the kind of voice that could only come from the heavens.....»»
