Filming on Bryan Singer’s Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody (out Dec. 25, 2018), has been underway for a few weeks now, and it’s still filling out the cast.

The latest to join Mr. Robot‘s Rami Malek, who is a dead ringer for the singer in the first look photo EW debuted earlier this month, are Game of Thrones actor Aidan Gillen and The Night Manager‘s Tom Hollander.

The band announced the casting Tuesday on its official site.

The man formerly known as Littlefinger will play John Reid, the band’s manager from 1975 to 1978. Hollander plays Jim Beach, Queen’s longtime manager who replaced Reid in 1978.

The film will also star Downton Abbey‘s Allen Leech, Lucy Boynton from Sing Street, and known “Bohemian Rhapsody” enthusiast Mike Myers.

When EW spoke with Singer earlier this month, he addressed some of the concern about where the narrative focus of the film would lie. “Let’s make an accessible movie that celebrates the music,” he said. “Tell the story — of course — the hero’s journey story of Freddie’s trajectory through that music and his life and make it in a way where as many people who love the music can experience the film, a film that is for all ages but doesn’t shy away from the story.”
