    Good decision. If I was his manager I would have insisted he decline the role too. The whole concept seems try hard:

    1. It is a remake (no creativity)
    2. They are trying hard to make it interracial
    3. The casted Ariel right away with a very cute black girl but forgot her personality is not that likeable in interviews.

    White privilege at its finest. Imagine a black singer/actor turning down a huge role like this. It can never happen. Black actors are never given huge opportunities like this.

      Beyonce turned down A Star Is Born. Whitney turned down Bodyguard 2. Eddie Murphy turned down Ghostbusters. Denzel Washington turned down Seven.

        Lets not forget too Will Smith turned down the Matrix of all movies too

      Isn’t the new Ariel black? White privileged because he turned down a role? You’re an idiot.

    • Paulo August 14, 2019

      So you spew racist crap on every other post but now when they report on a male white singer you have something to say about privilege? This is the real trolling right here 😂

    Don’t tell me Will Smith or Morgan Freeman and the list goes on never turned down a role… do we need to make everything about race ?
    He was not feeling the project, he said no. Point blank.

      Amen

    One thing is certain… This role is gonna push Halle Bailey career over the edge to the point where she will have no choice but to ditch her sister as the star.

    I can already see Hallie nailing this Aerial character and songs with ease. Perfect casting cuz all of a sudden my opinion of her went from audience member to main act. They’re decision to cast her was a genius move

    I hope they pick a BLACK man her age but I understand if he’s white. That will make for a bigger box office draw.

    Someone with a it factor like Joseph Gordon-Levitt or that parrites of carribean actor would be perfect for this role or even shai labuff. But Not them persay because they are all way too old.

    I also think The Queen Bey should play Ursela. Such an iconic villain

    He was never offered t – it was fake news!

    What else is he doing career-wise?? I never hear his music and apart from Dunkirk what other movies is he starring in? He is not cute anyway so don’t know why he was offered the role in the first place. Plenty if cute white and Asian boys who can take on the role.

    Harry Styles has a nice voice. I don’t know if it was fake news. Can he act tho ?

    Jonathan Groff would have been great, but he’s too old for the part now. And I don’t think they would dare hiring a gay actor for that part. Even tho it shouldn’t matter… but it’s not how it works…

    Brendon Urie also has a very nice voice. But he’s in his early 30s as well, so I guess too old for the part. He’s gay as well. Disney wouldn’t go there.

    The contenders :
    – Shawn Mendes : I don’t know what he sounds like live, I don’t know what’s his worth as an actor, but he is quite popular worldwide.
    – Joe Jonas : he has acting experience, nothing oscar worthy tho, he seems to sound good but I never heard him live.

    McCaul Lombardi from American Honey would be a good choice, except he’s not very well known.

    Dumb move.
