The first footage of Rami Malek performing as Freddie Mercury in a Queen biopic has been released - and it's already set the internet alight.

The iconic actor, who cemented his bond with Queen forever with that moment in Wayne's World, is reportedly having a conversation about joining the Bryan Singer-directed movie, reports Deadline. But his career really took off after his 1992 film Wayne's World, which opened with Myers and co-star Dana Carvey rocking out to the Queen song "Bohemian Rhapsody". Lucy Boynton is to play Freddie's "Love Of My Life" muse Mary Austin.

Unemployment at lowest level since 1975
With inflation hitting its joint highest level in over five years of 2.9% in August, wages are failing to keep up with inflation. There was an 181,000 improvement in employment in the three months to July compared to the three months to April.

Having left the film Del, a film about Del Close, the coach and mentor of numerous Hollywood stars, which has been put on hold for financial reasons, Mike Myers may be about to join the cast of another biopic.

Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen was attached to play Mercury before departing when May expressed concern that his prior roles in films like Borat and Bruno would distract from the film. Details are scarce about just who Myers will be playing.

Although no one will admit it, Myers seems to be very busy playing Tommy Maitland, the host of ABC's renovated The Gong Show, completely throwing himself into the portrayal of the British comedy legend.
