Adam Lambert finally confirmed his much-rumored, hiding-in-plain-sight cameo appearance in the Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. If the bearded dude hanging out at a truck stop men’s room looked familiar, bingo.
The former American Idol breakout and sometime Queen singer tweeted a photo of himself from the movie today, along with the message “Who is he!?” and two emojis – one smirking, one laughing.
See the tweet – and the photo – below.
Though Lambert had confirmed an appearance in the movie last fall, he didn’t reveal the character, and the blink-and-miss-it moment well into the film goes uncredited. The scene makes clear that the anonymous trucker and Mercury (Golden Globe winner Rami Malek) hook up at the truck stop during a Queen tour, just after the singer phoned fiancé Mary Austin (Lucy Boynton).
