We're in April and my mind can't comprehend where all the time has gone by! Seriously, what happened?

Things have been quiet on here as work has been quite busy. I'm hoping to be able to share all the deets from June once everything has settled.

I've been focusing on positive changes and choosing what makes me happy over what doesn't these days. I'm planning to share some of these experiences and thoughts soon.

Keep shining bright,

3 Casting Options for Aladdin

Have you heard, Disney apparently can’t find an actor for Aladdin. They put out a casting call months ago for a Middle-Eastern or Indian descent male in his twenties and ages later the team and Gut Ritchie can’t find anyone! Yes guys, from the unknowns to potential A-list options, they’re now behind their preposed schedule to start shooting in July because… they simply can’t find the best Aladdin.

I totally understand wanting the perfect guy to do the job, but when you start looking there are a number of options that can be considered. But I guess they’ll overshadow Will Smith as the Genie which is what they don’t want… of course.

I mean, I’m no expert in selecting the right talent to perform on screen, but thought I’d share my three options of Indian and Middle-Eastern guys who are talented and look the part – but I’m not really looking at age might I point out. Whether they’re a triple threat who can act, sing and dance is another story… but hello, training? Honestly, how hard is it to cast one of the most notable characters around? Sigh. Perhaps harder than we think it seems.

Here are three actors who could nail playing Aladdin:

Dev Patel

Avan Jogia

Riz Ahmed
