Alright, that's it. Every other contender for 'Best Actor' at the 2019 Academy Awards can go home now.

Unclear exactly who Myers will play, but his previous association with "Bohemian Rhapsody" came in Wayne's World.

"Mr. Robot" star Rami Malek is portraying Freddie Mercury in an upcoming biopic, "Bohemian Rhapsody", about the late Queen singer, and new fan-shot footage finds Malek recreating the band's famous Live Aid performance from 1985.

You can watch the clip above. And since we all know how Malek will look like as Mercury...

Conditions improve on Tuesday and Wednesday when the rain chances ease back to 20 and 30 percent and the winds subside even more. A tropical storm warning was issued for the first time ever in Atlanta, some 200 miles (320 kilometers) from the sea.

It's nearly impossible to think of Queen's signature tune "Bohemian Rhapsody" from their album A Night at the Opera without thinking of the sequence in Wayne's World where Saturday Night Live veterans Mike Myers and Dana Carvey lip sync and head bang to their heart's content.

Of course, it's not actually Wembley Stadium (it's a stage in a field somewhere) but that doesn't make any of this less thrilling.

Internet users, while split over the decision to cast Malek as Mercury, have heaped praise on his performance, complete with Mercury's flamboyant stage presence.
