Honestly, I wanted this guy to be Aladdin in the upcoming live-action. He would've been perfect. He seems like a good lead actor and has been in The Hundred-Foot Journey and The Resident.
After his breakthrough in Life of Pi, I thought he would've gotten tons of job offers, especially Aladdin. I'm kind of surprised they didn't cast him.

When I heard that she was cast as Jasmine, I was sooooo happy! She was my dream Jasmine, and I wanted her to be Jasmine so badly. She's perfect too. She can sing, and she's even been in Disney movies and shows. Her being cast is like the best thing ever!
I saw her in Shadowhunters and thought she would make a good Jasmine.

I can see him being funny and comedic as the Genie. He's certainly funny in iZombie.

He is an actor from Morroco and has appeared in several French films. Some of his well-known movies include The Adventures of Tintin, Midnight in Paris, and Priceless (starring Audrey Tautou). It would be really interesting to see him as a villain.
He is the only person in this list who I'm sure is Middle Eastern. Doesn't exactly look evil, but I think he would make a good Jafar.

His distinct high-pitched voice is perfect for the character, and his background in comedy would bring humor to the role.
Also someone known for comedy, and has done several voiceovers in the past, most notably Phineas and Ferb. You may also recognize him from 30 Rock as Jack Donaghy's assistant.

My fantasy cast for Aladdin. I know a lot of these actors are Indian, not Middle Eastern. But seriously. How many actors do you know are Middle Eastern, or at least part Middle Eastern? There's Nazanin Boniadi, but she's too old to play Jasmine. And probably too young to be her mother. Pej Vahdat is too old to be Aladdin, and I can't see him playing any other character. Definitely too young to be anyone's father. If anyone knows any good Middle Eastern actors who could play these roles, please suggest them in the comments so I can add them.
