1984: Freddie Mercury (1946 - 1991), lead singer of 1970s hard rock quartet Queen, in concert.

Plenty of people were excited when Mr. Robot’s Rami Malek was cast as Freddie Mercury in the upcoming Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, and the first image of Malek as the late frontman is jaw-dropping.

Entertainment Weekly shared the exclusive photo, and…just…WOW!

Seriously, it’s remarkable! It’s one thing to get facial hair and wardrobe down, but that pose? PERFECTION!

The photo was released on what would’ve been Mercury’s 71st birthday. So far, a release date for Bohemian Rhapsody has yet to be announced.
