Taking Another Look At Marwan Kenzari And His Scepter

We’re going to view Disney’s live action version of Aladdin in a different way now. 

Before it came out, the movie created quite the buzz with its casting of the film’s main cast, which included Mena Moussad as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Jasmine, and Will Smith as Genie.

Did you see the cast? How did they do?

We didn’t hear too many complaints about the film’s cast, especially, Disney’s pick to play Agrabah’s wicked villain, Jafar.  Marwan Kenzari was chosen to slip on the turban and carry the scepter.

With a face that could stop traffic and rock solid abs that will make you want more than 3 wishes, we enjoyed watching him in the most recent live-action adaptation.

But 5 years ago, Marwan showed it all in Reckless (Bloedlink in the original Dutch). The film is a Dutch-language remake of the 2009 film The Disappearance of Alice Creed and was the opening film of the Netherlands Film Festival in 2014.

Before we send you off to OMG Blog to see how he tames his own snake, here are some other thirsty throwback pics.
