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.
