From exclusive concert access to private plane rides, Scott Carty got a taste of the rock star life ahead of his interview with the cast of Bohemian Rhapsody.


Queen Biopic: Bohemian Rhapsody

As the iconic frontman of Queen, Freddie Mercury left a long shadow. We asked Rami Malek, the actor fitted for Mercury’s shoes, if he ever imagined himself in this position. 

“I don’t think anyone imagines that they’re ever going to play Freddie Mercury,” admitted Malek. “He is, to me, the greatest frontman that’s ever lived, so to portray him in this film is the greatest honor I could ever ask for.” 

Anyone who has seen the trailer for this film has experienced a sample of its reproduction of Queen's famous Wembley performance. As day one of shooting, we asked how the cast tackled this monumental moment.

“We had to know it beat for beat, move for move — I mean, everything.” - Joseph Mazzello

While the cast has been tasked with learning the looks, the moves, the instruments, the songs, and the accents, a whole new generation is about to learn about this band's music, accomplishments, and lasting impact from their movie.

If Gwilym Lee's experience is any indication, Queen is going to become a favorite of younger audiences.

“It’s already happened. My nieces and nephews are obsessed with Queen.” - Gwilym Lee

Bohemian Rhapsody will rock you in theaters this November 2nd.

Get ready Netflix fans! The platform just announced that two of its biggest stars are joining together for their newest movie.

Netflix revealed to TODAY that their latest film project is bringing Joey King, from The Kissing Booth, and Chase Stokes, from Outerbanks, together to play the two lead roles.

The new movie is an adaptation based off of the hit young adult sci-fi series Uglies by Scott Westerfield. Rumors about a film adaptation for the series have been circulating since the first novel's release, so Netflix's announcement comes as quite the pleasant surprise for fans.

Netflix had already teased that King was joining the cast for Uglies, however Stokes' involvement in the production was completely unknown until Tuesday. Along with announcing Stokes as the latest addition to the cast, Brianne Tju, from MTV's Scream, and Keith Powers, from the Freeform drama Famous in Love, will also be joining.

Uglies takes place in a dystopian society where beauty standards are taken to whole new extremes. Instead of getting your driver's permit at 16, teenagers are instead forced to get a complete reconstructive surgery, making them absolutely flawless--but that seems to be the flaw.

King is set to play the main protagonist of the film, Tally Youngblood, who will do literally anything to avoid her surgery. The roles of Stokes, Tju, and Powers still have yet to be released.

Uglies will be directed by Joseph McGinty Nichol, also known as McG, and Krista Vernoff is heading the screenplay adaptation. King will be executive producing the film alongside Jamie King, John Fox, and Scott Westerfield himself.

A premiere date for Uglies has yet to be disclosed.
