Bond gadget geek Q will play Queen frontman Freddie Mercury

He’s been called one of the greatest young actors of this generation by many critics, so it’s little surprise the announcement of Ben Whishaw (33) playing Freddie Mercury was met with such applause.

The UK-born actor – who played technology geek Q in Skyfall – is set to play the singer in a biopic about the Queen front man.

It’s not his first time playing a legendary singer – he’s previously played one facet of the acclaimed Bob Dylan in I’m Not There.

He takes over the role from Sacha Baron Cohen, who left over creative differences in July.
