Disney Struggling to Find Lead Actor

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

The Internet has spoken and Disney Studios finally answered! A popular frontrunner for the titular pauper-turned-prince? It's said the audition tape featured the 25-year-old performing a song from the musical.

Report also suggest that Disney was interested in casting Dev Patel or Riz Ahmed, but now it seems like the star will most likely be a rookie. However, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the Guy Ritchie production is struggling to find a lead for the project even though it's been four months since the casting process began.

However, what both fans and the studio are getting wrong is that Avan is not of Middle Eastern decent. Let that sink in, because we have the biggest film industry in the world which is full of brown actors of Middle Eastern or Indian descent who can dance their way to any woman's heart and probably sing along too.

Wii U, BlazBlue Central Fiction , The King of Fighters XIV , and Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. Wii U and Street Fighter 5 finals will be broadcast live on Disney XD this weekend.

Of course, the history of Aladdin itself is pretty fraught, given, as Slate points out, that the animated film was likely inspired by a mashup of disparate cultures, which is never a good look. It was first translated from Arabic to French and back to Arabic in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Since we grew up with Disney films and we know the local and worldwide entertainment industry well, we're going to help Guy Ritchie out here and give him a few options from which he can choose.
