    15 Guys Disney Should Actually Cast As Aladdin

    A list of snacks.

    Word on the street is, Disney is having a hard time finding someone to play the role of Aladdin in its upcoming live-action production.

    Now, I am certainly no casting expert, but it wasn't too hard for me to find 15 men who could definitely play the part.

    Based on looks, of course.

    And did I mention that they're all snacks???


    1. Avan Jogia


    The Canadian actor is well-known for his role as Beck Oliver in Victorious and Danny Desai in Twisted. I'm not sure if he can sing, but at least we know he can act!

    2. Azhar S.

    3. Shekib Samimi

    4. Alexander Uloom

    Alexander is an Iraqi model and actor whose Instagram account will have you dripping in thirst.

    This top model and ambassador for Samsung would have tickets sold out if Disney gave him the part.

    13. Hamid Fadaei

    This Iranian model may not have a ton of experience in acting, but I'd be willing to give him a chance.

    14. Abdel Abdelkader

    15. And Eman Esfandi


    Hamid Fadaei's name was misspelled in an earlier version of this post.
