Shooting Stars 2014 Portrait Session - 64th Berlinale International Film Festival"Aladdin" has found its big bad, and some new comic relief. But mostly, it found Marwan Kenzari's amazing abs. And Twitter says thanks.

Marwan Kenzari, who'll co-star in the upcoming "Murder on the Orient Express," is in negotiations to play villain Jafar in Disney's upcoming live-action "Aladdin" movie. Also, former "Saturday Night Live" player Nasim Pedrad has been cast in a role created just for the movie: Mara, handmaiden and friend of Jasmine. The Hollywood Reporter said her part is described as a comedic supporting role.

The main comedy will probably come from Will Smith as the genie, who'll star alongside Mena Massoud as Aladdin, and Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine.

In addition to "Murder on the Orient Express," Kenzari was also in "The Mummy," "The Promise," and "Ben-Hur." He's also currently starring in a lot of Twitter fantasies, from fans swooning over his hotness:

Cool down, guys! There's no word yet on the exact premiere date of this live-action "Aladdin," but clearly a lot of fans just got much more interested. Stay tuned.
