With Bohemian Rhapsody now in theaters everywhere, Queen fans and music fans alike have been waiting anxiously to see this film. But probably none have been more excited than comedian/actor Mike Myers.

Thanks to an iconic scene from the cult-film Wayne's World, Mike Myers is now forever associated with Queen's epic poem "Bohemian Rhapsody." A song he fought hard to have in the film, Myers was close to quitting Wayne's World altogether if it wasn't included. Fast-forward to 2018 to when he got word that the producers of the Bohemian Rhapsody biopic wanted to cast him in the film, everything came full-circle. "I got a call, 'Do you want to be in a movie called Bohemian Rhapsody? You play the EMI excecutive that turns to Queen and says 'You can't have 'Bohemian Rhapsody' on your album.' And I was like 'Yeah!'" says Myers. "They go, 'Do you want to read the script?' and I go, 'No, not really. I'm in!'"
