Ben Mendelsohn is an incredible talent. He’s the perfect villain in that you fear him, but you kinda also want to be him. His performance in ‘Bloodline‘ was one of his best. His character demanded your attention every single time he was on the screen.
So why are we kissing so much a** right now? Well, because Mendelsohn did another amazing thing. While doing an interview with triple j in Australia, the 48-year-old actor was challenged to take on Disney’s The Lion King, to see how disturbing he could make the typically joyful I Just Can’t Wait To Be King.
You have to watch this. Hopefully someone from Disney is also watching, ’cause he should definitely be their next villain…
By the way, the live-action Lion King remake is still happening. Donald Glover is set to voice Simba, and James Earl Jones will return as Mufasa.[mashshare]
