John Oliver, host of of the HBO political talk-show”Last Week Tonight with John Oliver”, is set to join the cast of the Disney’s upcoming live-action “The Lion King“. Oliver will voice the the role of high-strung Zazu the king’s royal adviser.

The Lion King has already seen a number of big names join the cast including James Earl Jones (Mufasa), Donald Glover (Simba), Billy Eichner (Timon), and Seth Rogen (Pumba). After his technologically groundbreaking production of Disney’s “The Jungle Book”, Jon Favreau is returning to direct a new re-imagining of “The Lion King”.

Disney’s The Lion King will be in theaters July 19, 2019.

I don’t know about you but I think John Oliver as Zazu is the definition of perfect casting. What do you think?
