Last night, the world got its first look at Rami Malek portraying the late, great Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in the upcoming biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” via Entertainment Weekly.
Malek is Egyptian Coptic, Mercury was Zanzibari Parsee.

Or is it that vaguely brown people are all the same these days?
