Disney Can't Find A Live Action Aladdin — Leaving Fans Of THIS Actor Scratching Their Heads!

no title

A rising star ain't never had a friend like Twitter!

Disney may not know the name Avan Jogia, but everyone who has seen the hottie sing, dance, and steal scenes from stars like Victoria Justice and Ben Kingsley does.

So when reports came out that Guy Ritchie was having a hard time finding a lead for his live action version of Aladdin, fans of the 25-year-old had to point out the glaring apparent omission from the casting net.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Disney has opted not to go with early frontrunners Dev Patel and Riz Ahmed because they're too well-known, and they'd rather cast a fresh face, specifically one of Middle Eastern descent.

They've considered and reportedly tested Achraf Koutet, Mena Massoud, and George Kosturos — but quite a few fans seem to know who they want.

Ch-ch-check out some of their reactions (below)!

Guy Ritchie's King Arthur Opened With A Castratingly Low Box Office — Just Like These Other Big Screen Bombs!

no title

Charlie Hunnam reportedly did 1000 pushups a day to get bulked up for his leading role in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

And based on the box office report, it looks like the actor did about just as many pushups as the film made in dollars its opening weekend!

Guy Ritchie's adaptation of the Arthurian legend severely underperformed at the domestic box office, earning just $14.7 million from 3,702 theaters — hundreds of thousands of stones short from its $175 million budget.

You can blame it on the not-so-marketable timing of opening on Mother's Day weekend, or David Beckham fans not coming through to watch the athlete's acting debut — but no matter the reason, this epic was the first huge bomb of the summer season.

Of course, King Arthur isn't the first blockbuster to bust little block at the box office. Check out even bigger bombs (below)!

Father-son date night!

The former soccer star opted for a tan suit and light blue shirt, while his oldest son kept it more casual in a white tee and rolled-up slacks.

Brooklyn was also essentially his dad's carbon copy — they look more alike every day!

Piers Morgan Shits All Over David Beckham's Acting In King Arthur — Watch & Decide For Yourself!

Piers Morgan is such a jerk!

David Beckham is making his big screen acting debut in pal Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword, so of course the Good Morning Britain host took the opportunity to open old wounds and insult the soccer star's acting.

He said of Becks' two lines in a clip:

"That's one of the great gender neutral performances I've seen… I thought it was a very, very good performance. Honestly. Oscars, wow, exciting… A super talented man."

His cohosts immediately detected his dry sarcasm (they probably hear it every day when he tells people they look nice) and jumped to Beckham's defense.

Watch the clip (below) and decide for yourself if Morgan was justified in his disdain:
