Avan Jogia Has Auditioned for 'Aladdin,' In the Mix to Land Role!

Avan Jogia is clearly the internet’s favorite to play the title role in the upcoming live-action remake of Disney’s Aladdin and it seems he’s one step closer to landing the part!

The 25-year-old actor sent in an audition tape in which he sings a song from the movie and now director Guy Ritchie is considering him for the role, according to TMZ.

Will Smith is set to play the Genie in the film, but a recent report claimed that the producers are having trouble finding actors to play Aladdin and Jasmine as they want to find people of the correct ethnicity. This lead to the internet providing a whole bunch of suggestions, with Avan being the clear favorite to play Aladdin.

DO YOU THINK Avan Jogia should star in the Aladdin movie?

    Freda Pinto would be a good Jasmine. She’s not Arabian however, she sort of look like the animated character.

    Never heard of him before but he’s handsome.

    show him the back door………..NO ANUS THIS TIME!!

    I heard Jade Thirwall from the girl group Little Mix is a contender for the role. She is half Arab.

  • Shell

    He’s usually ignored because he started on a Nick show but he can act. He was in a mini series about Tutankhamun a few years ago and he played Tut. The show wasn’t anything to cheer about but he was one of the better actors on it.

    Saying that though, there are other actors who would suit the role even better but because they are unknown I doubt they would even get a look in.
