Tunisian-Dutch actor Marwan Kenzari has folks rooting for the bad guy.


Kenzari is not quite a household name. Yet.

He previously appeared in the Ben-Hur remake, the Tome Cruise film The Mummy and the star-studded Murder on the Orient Express.

In the Disney live-action remake of their classic animated film Aladdin, the company took a different turn in casting the villain Jafar, the Grand Vizier. And people are thrilled.

This is what Jafar looked like in 1992.

This is what we are getting now.

Twitter is losing it's collective mind over the new "Hot Jafar" with some going so far as to say they will be rooting for evil to win. Many also encourage Jasmine to rethink that wedding proposal.

It's pretty hard to argue with that when you are looking at this.


And this.



Hold on, we're not done.

Most of all this.

Put a fork in Twitter, we're done.




Is it getting hot in here?





Are you seeing what we're seeing?



We may need a minute to collect ourselves.




Aladdin who?






Sorry Aladdin, better luck next remake.
