The actor, best known as the sensitive and level-headed Tony on the controversial Netflix show, spoke out on Twitter about his desire to be part of the Disney reboot.
A couple of weeks ago, following the news that Harry Styles had turned down the role, he declared to his fans: So I heard Harry Styles passed on Prince Eric, well…I can sing. Black Ariel/Latino Prince.
No ones called but Season 3 drops next week and I think its one hell of an audition.
Fast forward to this week, and Christian revealed that following a fan campaign to get him noticed by the movie company, hes actually been given a shot at the hunky prince in question.
Idk what happened to the other tweet. But! @disney saw this, saw your support, and gave my team a call.
They wanted to see what I could do. Tapes sent. Fingers crossed. Lets make some history. #iloveyou3000 #PrinceEric #TheLittleMermaid

Its also been rumoured, but not confirmed, that Melissa McCarthy will play Ursula.
But its the casting of Prince Eric that people are dying to know, with a social campaign backing BTSs Jimin to take on the part.
