In the movie the Labyrinth, can you believe that the director considered Micheal Jackson to be Jereth? It would have been a terrible movie!!! I think they chose the perfect person, David Bowie. If Freddie was alive and had done the movie instead of David, i think he would have made it more exciting. Do you agree, and if not, who do you think would have been better out of anny rock artist?

I'm not too sure. It's a hard question for me to answer.
freddie was very much alive when the labyrinth was made. i think it was around 87 or so. he would have been good, but not as good as bowie was, imo.
I agree with you. I would say Freddie would be good from around 1987 onwards but Bowie would probably still play it better. I would like to see Freddie play his part though.
This is a crazy thing to write? I love David Bowie but he was just awful in Labyrinth. I love Labyrinth but only because David Bowie was in it, awful though he was. Freddie would have been an even worse choice to play Jareth, but I greatly doubt that he would have considered it anyway. He knew to stick to what he was good at!

I didn't think he was too bad in Labyrinth.

But Freddie always said performing was like acting. That was what he was doing on all the shows. Playing different parts. In videos too. He would have probably been a good actor, considering.

I think Freddie would have been a good actor. However...as a goblin king? That would have been strange. Granted, I think it would be strange for everyone, but Bowie has been known for using strange, unearthly characters- Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, The Thin White Duke, etc. Okay, they weren't all bisexual rockstars from Mars, but still...quite strange compared to most standards. Freddie was unique. Excellent, beautiful, the greatest person ever! *ahem* But perhaps, not a goblin king. I would have liked to see him in a more serious, dramatic role. I don't know if anyone agrees with me, but I think he would have been best at that. Afterall, maybe that's what he was hiding from everyone in his life, a dramatic position. He really was acting, wasn't he? *nervous laugh* Does anyone understand what I'm saying?
