The chiseled Crews posted a fun composite of himself Saturday as the pumped Poseidon-like ruler, complete with fin.
“Ariel’s Dad!!!” he wrote, adding in another tweet: “Good thing I skip leg day because mermen don’t have legs!”
Lizzo has made her interest known for the part of Ursula, though Melissa McCarthy is reportedly in talks for the role.
There’s no denying Crews, a former NFL player who stars on “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and is the host of “America’s Got Talent,” could be a viable choice for King Triton.
So Disney, put a trident, er fork, in it. Your search is done, at least according to some Twitter users.
If you play Ariel’s dad, Disney will have my money. 💯%.

I don’t like Disney live-action remakes, but I’ll watch this one if this were to happen
