Word on the street is, Disney is having a hard time finding someone to play the role of Aladdin in its upcoming live-action production.

1. Avan Jogia


The Canadian actor is well-known for his role as Beck Oliver in Victorious and Danny Desai in Twisted. I'm not sure if he can sing, but at least we know he can act!

2. Azhar S.
