Watch Rami Malek Perform Bohemian Rhapsody As Freddie Mercury

Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury in

Footage has surfaced of actor Rami Malek portraying late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in the upcoming biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

It looks like Malek has learnt to move, breathe, dance, sing and perform like Mercury, and come Oscars time, he's going to damn well be rewarded for it. Now, some no-good villain has snuck onto the movie's set and captured some illicit footage of a recreation of Queen's iconic 1985 Live Aid show, complete with some dancing and some vocals that are nearly certainly too good to be true.

It's nearly impossible to think of Queen's signature tune "Bohemian Rhapsody" from their album A Night at the Opera without thinking of the sequence in Wayne's World where Saturday Night Live veterans Mike Myers and Dana Carvey lip sync and head bang to their heart's content.

"Shockingly accurate. I wonder what those guys who were at the concert years ago would feel when they see this". It could even end up being a throwaway supporting role like the one he played in Inglourious Basterds.

"I was totally blown away by how incredible his back looked and how realistic his piano pantomiming was", another wrote.
