In mid-July 2017, Disney announced that Egyptian born actor (and eye-candy) Mena Massoud will play the hero in their live-action remake of their 1992 animated film Aladdin. But now they’ve cast the role of the villain and many web commenters are saying that he’s even sexier than the hero — lucky for them, shirtless and nude pics of him exist online.
The Hollywood Reporter states that 34-year-old Dutch-born Tunisian-descended actor Marwan Kenzari is in negotiations to play Jafar, the villainous magician and Grand Vizier who tries to overpower Aladdin, wed Princess Jasmine and control the entire fictionl kingdom of Agrabah.
Although Kenzari is not yet mega-famous, he has already appeared in a number of high-profile American films such as the 2016 remake of Ben Hur, the 2016 action film Collide, the 2017 action flop The Mummy and the upcoming star-studded mystery film Murder on the Orient Express.
Kenzari will star in the live-action remake of Aladdin alongside Naomi Scott from Power Rangers as Jasmine and Will Smith as the Genie. The film will also star former Saturday Night Live comedienne Nasim Pedrad in the role of Mara, handmaiden and friend to Princess Jasmine. While Mara did not appear in the 1992 animated film, her newly added character will provide comedic support.
Web commenters have already started lusting over sexy pics of Kenzari, making comments like “Jafar can get as Jaclose to me as he wants” and “Well, it looks like I’ll be rooting for Jafar in the live action Aladdin.” Looking at his pics below, it’s easy to see why.
If you like seeing him shirtless, you may be interested to know that he also appeared completely nude in the 2014 action film Reckless. In his nude scene, he defends himself from a gun attack despite being naked and chained to bed. To see video of the scene, head to this NSFW site or this NSFW site or you can view way too many stills from it at this janky blogger.com site.
You can also watch Kenzari work out in this video below for Men’s Health magazine. You better watch your butt, Aladdin.
