High five!

Borat actor Sacha Baron Cohen has signed on to play mustache-clad rocker Freddie Mercury, the late lead singer of Queen, in an upcoming movie directed by King Of Scotland director Peter Morgan.

The movie will reportedly deal with the years leading up to the band’s triumphant Live Aid performance in 1985.

The surviving members of Queen and Mercury’s estate have all endorsed the project.
