Actress Kate Beckinsale has set herself a real movie challenge - she wants to portray Freddie Mercury on film.

The sexy Underworld star has revealed that playing the late Queen frontman is a role she'd relish - and she thinks she'd look good as a man.

She tells WENN, "I would like to play a big concert as Freddie Mercury. I can't sing that great... but I quite fancy having a moustache like that."

"He was such a great showman and I think that would be good - I'd quite like to do that."

The odd casting idea might be some way off, however, because funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen is reportedly onboard to play the flamboyant rocker in a new biopic.
