ACTORS Taron Egerton and Rami Malek get pally after starring in separate blockbuster biopics.
Elton John actor Taron, 29, posed in New York with Rami, 38, who won an Oscar as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody — but was blasted by Sir Elton for lip-syncing.
Taron’s Rocketman, which is rated 15, came £4.1million short of family-friendly Bohemian Rhapsody’s £9.5million takings in its first five days at the UK box office.
