Disney announced Halle Bailey as Ariel in its upcoming live action The Little Mermaid remake, and Terry Crews wants to join the fun.

Crews jumped on social media Saturday afternoon to post a photo of him as the king under the sea. He captioned the campaign pic, “Ariel’s Dad!!!! #ArielsGotTerry #AmericasGotTerry

Fans were here for Crews’ idea to be cast in the film, and said Disney will certainly get their money if this were to actually happen.

While Crews is urging Disney to give him a chance, Variety reports actress Melissa McCarthy is “in early talks to play the sea witch Ursula.”

Nothing has been confirmed, but it’s only a matter of time before Disney announces the cast of the 1989 remake.
