Avan Jogia Auditioned For "Aladdin", But Casting Him Would Be Wrong

  • 039;Victorious' star Avan Jogia has reacted to the Twitter frenzy over his possible 'Aladdin' casting

The only time Hollywood does a good job of casting is when they are casting for terrorists.

So obviously Disney studios is still struggling to find an actor for their live action film, Aladdin.

Sources close to Avan told TMZ he's submitted an audition tape to the director Guy Ritchie that included Avan singing a song from the musical.

Filmmaker Guy Ritchie hopes to start production of the much-anticipated Aladdin by August - however, going by the media reports, surprisingly the filmmaker and his team have not yet finalised an actor to play Aladdin.

Well, if that's the case, here's a list of 7 Middle Eastern male actors Disney could consider for the role. We're sure he has the chops and we can't fault him for sending in an audition tape, seeing as how Disney reportedly put out a call encouraging both Middle Eastern and Indian actors to audition for the role.

Since we grew up with Disney films and we know the local and global entertainment industry well, we're going to help Guy Ritchie out here and give him a few options from which he can choose. Twitter users have been suggesting prospects for the role, including "Victorious" star Avan Jogia and "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" singer Zayn Malik.

Other than suggestions there were quite a few tweets which ridiculed the usual racial stand of Hollywood.
