Fans Are Going Wild For 'Hot' Jafar In Aladdin Live Action Remake - Despite The Fact He's The Baddie
So by now, everyone knows that there's a live-action remake of Aladdin coming. After the huge success of Beauty and the Beast, they'd be mad not to.
The casting has started and one of the first people to bag a role is Marwan Kenzari.
Who's he? Well, you'll be glad you asked. He's just been given the role of the bad guy, Jafar. Remember him?
Weirdly long head, bit of a b*stard... yeah, you remember.
Funnily enough, Marwan doesn't look at all how you'd picture him...
Fans are going wild. Can we blame them?!
A topless video of the 34-year-old Dutch-Tunisian actor went viral on Twitter, and fans couldn't contain their excitement.

If I was Jasmin, Jafar wouldn't need to plot to become Sultan... dude can have the whole kingdom if he promises to walk around shirtless.- Emma (@AbilityDrain) 5 August 2017

There's some tweets that are so graphic I can't actually include them in this article...
But I think we can all agree that he's a very good looking bloke.
This all comes after Little Mix's Jade Thirwall lost out on the part of Jasmin to Power Rangers' actress Naomi Scott. She'd already said live on telly that she couldn't "confirm nor deny" the rumours when she was initially put forward for the part...
Poor thing. She posted an image to her Instagram saying she was "over it" though, so I'm sure she's fine.
