Comedian Mike Myers has had a long and successful career with a memorable stint on Saturday Night Live and his tremendously influential Austin Powers films.

The film is said to focus on the music of Queen instead of Mercury's life, which is one reason why Sacha Baron Cohen, who was originally supposed to play Mercury, stepped down from the role. "Freddie had gotten sick, the last time we had seen them was on Live Aid and then there were a few albums after where they were sort of straying away from their arena-rock roots".
