Live action “Aladdin”

Disney is trying to cast Guy Ritchie’s live action remake of “Aladdin”…and the Twitterverse is happy to help.  

The studio has reportedly seen more than 2,000 actors to fill the roles of Aladdin and Jasmine, with the requirement that they have to be of Middle Eastern descent and be able to sing.

Will Smith has already signed on to play the Genie, but Twitter users have suggested lots of names for the other roles, including One Direction’s Zayn Malik for Aladdin and Priyanka Chopra (of ABC’s “Quantico”) for Jasmine.
