The Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody tells the tale of the legendary singer and the formation of Queen, from the band's humble beginnings to their monumental Live Aid performance in '85. As far as choosing actors who look like the real-life members of Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody got pretty close. Casting actors as real-life figures is no small order, and the film needed to honor the status of a monolithic group that is still relatively fresh in the minds of many fans.
Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury elicited buzz from the moment the film's first stills were released, and the rest of Mercury's bandmates were cast pretty faithfully, as well. The filmmakers even captured the players associated with the band, especially their manager John Reid, with a great deal of accuracy. While the film itself may be a bit of a mixed bag, the Bohemian Rhapsody cast looks accurate enough to rock you just as much as the film's title track.
