Javier Bardem to preside over The Little Mermaid

Javier Bardem is getting some more floaty CGI hair. According to Variety, the actor is in talks to join Halle Bailey, Melissa McCarthy, and Harry Styles in Disney’s latest joyless facsimile of a classic, The Little Mermaid. Bardem would play King Triton—ruler of Atlantica, father of Ariel and her sisters, and a man a fish body on the bottom half where there would normally be legs, butt, penis, and testicles.

Javier Bardem has also won an Academy Award.
