The Live-Action 'Little Mermaid' Has Cast Jonah Hauer-King as Prince Eric

By

The live-action version of The Little Mermaid has officially cast its Prince Eric! And no, it's not Harry Styles, even though he was in talks for a second there. The person who will play opposite Halle Bailey as the dashing (albeit kind of clueless) Prince Eric is...drum roll please...

Jonah Hauer-King! Deadline first reported the news that the British actor has won the role. He'll star in the Rob Marshall-directed movie alongside Bailey as Ariel, Melissa McCarthy as Ursula, Awkwafina as Scuttle, and Jacob Tremblay as Flounder. As of right now, the actor circling the role of King Triton is none other than Javier Bardem. But let's get back to Jonah.
