Back in July it was reported that One Direction member and Dunkirk star Harry Styles was being considered for the role of Prince Eric in Disney’s live-action take on The Little Mermaid. But ultimately Styles decided to pass up the role in order to focus on his music.
Now, with the rest of the cast already set, Disney has finally chosen an actor to play Prince Eric. According to reports, Jonah Hauer-King has landed the role.
It looks like another one of the main characters has been cast for The Little Mermaid, Disney’s live-action remake of their 1989 animated classic of the same name.
It’s being reported that Daveed Diggs is in talks to join the cast. If ink meets paper he’ll voice the role of Sebastian the crab, who sang the Academy Award-winning song “Under the Sea” in the animated original.
