Terry Crews Is Gunning For The Role Of Triton In Little Mermaid Remake

We're not mad at it.

The Little Mermaid remake was gifted its first big casting decision last week: Halle Bailey as Ariel.

It was welcome news for those who stan not only the actress, but Disney remakes - and boy, there are a lot of 'em - alike.

And now? 

Oh, no biggie. Just Terry Crews of White Chicks and Brooklyn Nine-Nine fame gunning for the role of King Triton.

The 50-year-old announced his bid for the role with an image of him with the trident and tail:

The news comes after some controversy (see: Twitter storm in a teacup) about the casting of Halle with the hashtag #NotMyAriel trending for a hot minute.

This has, thankfully, largely calmed down with the angry mob finally realising fish are void of race.

Awkwafina, of Crazy Rich Asians and TBH, a pretty fire rap game on YouTube, has reportedly been cast as seagull Scuttle and ET report Melissa McCarthy as in talks to play Ursula. 

Add Terry to the mix?
