Javier Bardem may play ‘King Triton”….yes, please!
Even though Terry Crews has suggested he play ‘King Triton’ in the upcoming live-action remake of The Little Mermaid (and he would be great), Disney is apparently looking at someone else for the role; that someone else is Oscar winner, Javier Bardem!
Bardem would (if it all pans out) join a cast that’s coming together quickly, especially considering Disney has been trying to redo The Little Mermaid for a few years now. The Bardem news comes a mere day after it was revealed One Direction boy bander (and Dunkirk soldier) Harry Styles was in talks to play the prince that bewitches Ariel. Meanwhile, Halle Bailey (not Halle Berry) has already been named as the new Ariel, and Melissa McCarthy is probably playing Ursula — that is, unless Lizzo swipes it from under her. Of course, they still haven’t cast a Sebastian…(via)
