In Disney's new CGI and live-action remake of The Little Mermaid there was a lot of commotion. Last week it was announced that Halle Bailey was cast as Ariel for the film, whose production should begin in early 2020.
We're sure she'll do a great job showing Disney's famous mermaid princess, but many more muscle-loving people may wonder who will play another figureheaded character from the original movie: Ariel's father, King Triton.
The Internet has a few ideas, including none other than a veteran. Muscle & Fitness Title star Terry Crews. He even took on his Twitter to throw his hat in the ring for the role:

Twitter user @ bosslogic A popular graphic artist, shared a more detailed picture of how Crews might look like the King of the Sea, and there's no denying that he did it look the part.

If you think that someone with even more muscle than crews suits you better, Kai Greene may be a viable option. The top-notch bodybuilder went on Instagram to show a cartoon version of himself as King Triton.

We're all in favor of this, but it would be a goddamn shame to cover up Greene's legs on his movie debut.
On Twitter, @bosslogic also threw Idris Elba as a possible person on King Triton, and we would argue that Elba is perfect for just about any role.

It will not be easy to cast one of Disney's best kings, but there are definitely some solid actors to choose from.No
