Alan Tudyk to Voice Iago in Aladdin

Continuing his run as the busiest man in Hollywood, Disney has revealed that the venerable Alan Tudyk (Doom Patrol) will voice Jafar’s trusty parrot, Iago, in the upcoming live-action adaptation of Aladdin. Iago was a fairly prominent character in the original animated film, with Gilbert Gottfried’s performance being just as iconic as Robin Williams’ Genie.

Both Alan Tudyk and Will Smith will have some pretty hefty shoes to fill when Aladdin hits theaters on May 24th, but given the most recent trailer, things are looking a little brighter than expected.
