John Oliver cast as Zazu in THE LION KING
This is just perfect. Casting for the upcoming live action The Lion King has been talked about, rumored, and very few have been confirmed. The latest casting news has been for the lovable bird Zazu and it’s… drum roll please… John Oliver!
John Oliver will be playing the role formerly played by Rowan Atkinson, better known as Mr. Bean. He joins a cast featuring Donald Glover, Billy Eichner, Seth Rogen and James Earl Jones as Simba, Timon, Pumbaa, and Mufasa respectively. The film is directed by Jon Favreau and is set to release on July 19, 2019.
Do you have any fan casting for the film? Who would you like to see join the cast? I for one would like to see Benedict Cumberbatch as Scar.
