Rami Malek was hailed Best Actor during the 91st Academy Awards for his phenomenal performance as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody.

You can’t make us watch anything Twilight-related but when you say Rami is there, we’re watching for Rami.

Night at the Museum (2006, 2009, 2014)
Rami Malek as Pharaoh Ahkmenrah
For most of us, we first saw Rami as the good-looking mummy of Pharaoh Ahkmenrah in Night at the Museum where his Golden Tablet, an Egyptian artifact, is responsible for bringing the exhibits to life at night. Egyptian Rami portraying an Egyptian role is such a treat. As Pharaoh Ahkmenrah, Rami is quirky, serious, loyal, and adventurous, and it’s great seeing him in that costume.
