Jason’s followers are hard at work trying to figure out which film and character Disney would believe best fit Jason’s look. A week ago, @thejasondiaz posts a video on TikTok in reply to the comment, “If Scar was a real person and respected women, this would be it.” Jason takes the challenge with a Scar shirt and transforms his face to look the part.

Way to go Jason… and yes, we’re extremely curious about which Disney film and what mystery Disney role he is being cast for! Comments to the video believe Jason would be perfect for the iconic character Scar from The Lion King (because of his previous video). Others suggest a favorite character such as Jafar or Aladdin from Aladdin, Tarzan himself from the film Tarzan, Prince Naveen from The Princess and the Frog, Eugene (AKA Flynn Rider) from Tangled, or even Hook from Peter Pan.

Which live-action Disney actor could you see Jason cast for? Let us know in the comments!
