'The Little Mermaid' Eyeing 'Hamilton's' Daveed Diggs To Play Sebastian

Sebastian is one of the best characters from The Little Mermaid.

He's hilarious, wise, gets himself into trouble without meaning to, and just really loves Ariel.

Who wouldn't love him?

'The Little Mermaid' live-action is slowly but surely coming together.


The movie is still looking for a Prince Eric, but they may have finally found a Sebastian!

Daveed Diggs is being looked at to play the part!


However, it remains to be seen.

There has been no confirmation of the role as of right now. But we are hopeful.

Diggs would be fantastic for the part, considering his acting and music career.


He was in the hit musical Hamilton, which pretty much took over the world.

So yeah, he'd be amazing.
