#25: Rami Malek as Jafar from Aladdin
Aladdin revolves around a small set of central characters: Aladdin, Jasmine, Jafar, and the Genie. Casting each of these roles would be a herculean task since each character is distinct from the others. Jafar might be the most difficult of all because much of his villainous expression comes from the eyes.
We’ve examined some picks for Jasmine would be but what about Jafar? We didn’t originally shortlist Rami Malek in our list of suspects for the casting, but now that we see it, we have to concede that he would be an outstanding choice. Even his Egyptian background might better suit proper representation in another remake.
