British Actor Fady Elsayed Should Be Cast as Aladdin in Disney's Live-Action Flick

JJJ really finds it hard to believe that Disney is having a really hard time casting the title role for their live-action Aladdin.

Apparently, there’s an issue casting a “male lead in his 20s who can act and sing”, plus he has to be “of Middle-Eastern or Indian descent.”

Um, have they seen Avan Jogia, Deniz Akdeniz or even Life of Pi‘s Suraj Sharma? We’re sure they would be amazing in the part — as would our pick, Fady Elsayed.

Don’t know him? Well, you should. Fady stars on BBC’s Class as Ram, and yes, he’s perfect at it.

We know for sure he can act, and yes, he’s of Middle Eastern descent…so can he sing? That’s the bigger question. Even if he isn’t the best, Fady is still our pick…so why is Disney taking this long to cast him?

TELL JJJ: Who is your pick for Disney’s live-action Aladdin?
