The actor Terry Crews has nominated himself to play Ariel’s father, King Triton, in the new live-action remake, which is set to start filming soon!
The actor, best known as the host on American’s Got Talent or the hit show Brooklyn Nine-Nine, recently shared a photoshopped image of himself with a mermaid’s tail in front of the animated version of the Little Mermaid’s castle with the caption, “Ariel’s Dad!! #ArielsGotTerry #AmericasGotTerry”.

The post was meant to be funny, however, fans are now desperate to see this buff actor actually play King Triton alongside Halle Bailey. One fan wrote, ‘I don’t like Disney live-action remakes, but I’ll watch this one if this were to happen’ while others are responding with their own version of a photoshopped Terry Crews as King Triton.
Well seeing as King Triton was powerful, we think Terry Crews has that covered. Look at the size of those arms! One fan even wrote, ‘Well okay, but only if there’s a scene where he beats up Ursula using nothing but his pecs’. Now that would be a sight anyone would want to see!
Even though there is no word yet on who will actually play King Triton in the new live-action remake, we wouldn’t be disappointed with this choice. What are your thoughts? Who should play King Triton alongside Halle Baily as Ariel and Awkwafina as Scuttle? Tell us your thoughts!
