(The Wrap) “Actor-singer Harry Styles has turned down an offer to play the role of Prince Eric in Disney’s live-action remake of “The Little Mermaid,” individuals with knowledge of the project exclusively told TheWrap.
One of the individuals said that Styles is a fan of the project but respectfully declined.”
Well, that’s a bummer. Styles was a good choice for a number of reasons: He’s at a reasonable age comparable to his co-star Halle Bailey, he’s a decent actor AND he had a great voice. Add one or two original songs for him to perform on the soundtrack and BAM, you have a great movie. At this point, I’m not sure who I would want to take the role. Instead of me naming off arthouse eclectic choices, why don’t you tell me who you think should play him?
