Disney Can’t Find A Middle-Eastern Actor To Play Aladdin

Disney is reportedly struggling to cast the leads for the live-action Aladin movie.

The studio wants the actors to be of Middle-Eastern or Indian descent, and after 4 months of searching, neither Aladin nor Jasmine have been cast.

Of course, the Internet has decided to chime in and help out.

Disney reportedly has interest in Dev Patel and Riz Ahmed.
