Guess Which A-Lister Is Going To Play David Bowie?

It’ll come as no surprise to regular readers to know that we have something of a crush on Benedict Cumberbatch. The Sherlock Holmes actor is definitely one of our guilty pleasures, so rumours that he could be about to play one of music’s biggest icons is certainly getting us excited.

Yep, according to leaked Sony emails, Benedict is reportedly being considered for the role of David Bowie in a biopic about Freddie Mercury’s life, Under Pressure.
The actor has revealed in the past that Bowie would be his dream role, so it looks like there’ll be no hesitation when it comes to snapping up the part, and apparently the admiration is mutual, with David being a fan of Benedict as Sherlock.

Delays on the film have been ongoing, so we may have to wait a while to see Benedict all glam-rocked up and glittery-eyed, but if it all turns out to be true, it will be so worth it!
