The upcoming Queen biopic has piqued the interest of Adam Lambert, which is no surprise since he's been tour BFFs with the band for years. But the role that he's requesting is quite unexpected!

Most people would think Lambert is the perfect choice to play the late Freddie Mercury, since he's been capturing Mercury's vibrant personality and showmanship in his place. Well, guess again! The "Ghost Town" singer told Digital Spy"I'd want to be in bed with Freddie. I think that would be appropriate at this point! I don't usually say things on the record, but that's the part I want. I want to be one of his lovers."

After that major and naughty revelation that is sure to get the Glamberts excited, Lambert went on to say he's discussed the film with guitarist Brian May:

"I asked about how times have changed as far as being open about somebody's private life. And I asked them, 'How are you going to approach that with the story of Freddie?' Back in the '70s and the '80s, it was something you just didn't really talk about. Obviously we're in a much different time now, and it's very topical so it'll be really interesting to see how they'll approach that part of his life. They haven't quite figured it out yet as the movie is still in development."

Last month, Sacha Baron Cohen (who was booked to play Mercury) explained that he left the Queen biopic after some creative differences in the storyline. There is still no word of when the project will be finished.
