.
On Monday Queen's May Vs Sacha Baron Cohen Over Freddie Mercury Biopic was a top story. Here is the recap: (TeamRock Radio) Brian May says that actor Sacha Baron Cohen "became an arse" when they were working on a film based on the life of Freddie Mercury. The guitarist says that claims from the actor that the band wanted to whitewash the late Queen frontman's life are untrue - and says Cohen wasn't right for the role.

May tells the Daily Mail: "Sacha became an arse. We had some nice times with Sacha kicking around ideas but he went off and told untruths about what happened.

"Why would he go away and say that we didn't want to make a gritty film? Are we the kind of people who have ever ducked from the truth? I don't think so.

"We decided he wasn't right for the role for very good reasons, which will become apparent if you watch what he's done recently." Read more - here.
