Rami Malek on ice

Enjoy These Photos of Rami Malek Flailing Around on Ice

Fresh off winning Best Actor at the Academy Awards for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury, Rami Malek very publicly demonstrated that he has range. Malek's performance in Bohemian Rhapsody was practically universally acclaimed, thanks in large part to Malek's physical performance, which allowed him to reach near-Mercury levels of stage presence and charisma. None of that grace was to be found, however, in his latest performance, which took place on Tuesday in New York City.

While filming Mr. Robot's fourth (and, according to Malek, "very, very climactic") final season, Malek also managed to get in a workout. To onlookers' delight, the scene in question found his character, the troubled hacker Elliot Alderson, roaming around a sizable portion of Central Park—including across one of its ice-skating rinks—while being chased by the cops.

Malek was apparently later seen leaving the subway with his costar, Christian Slater, whatever that means for the show. All that really matters—until it returns later this year, anyway—is what went down on the ice. Thanks to the fact that Malek apparently does his own stunts (at least when safely suited up in crampons), it ended up producing a glorious photo essay to tide you over until the season premiere. Behold:

Go, Rami, go!

Tsk, tsk—looks like someone needs to work on his butterfly.

Particularly since he'll soon be leaving behind the role of Elliot, which has won him an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series since he took it up in 2015, this thrilling display of Malek's commitment to the craft is just the latest evidence that the 37-year-old is more than qualified to take up the role of the next James Bond. (Even if, come to think of it, he might actually make a better Spider-Man.)
