Personal Quote:

I grew up on Disney movies and, as a kid, I always liked the villains. I loved everything about them - their scale and magic powers - that always appealed to me. So when I got the opportunity to take on Jafar for the film, it was a childhood dream come true. See more »

Trivia:

Was a member of both the cast of Aladdin (1992) and the 2011 Broadway cast (where he reprised his role of Jafar), which he continued until January 2022. As of that date, he is the only performer to bridge a Disney movie-to-Broadway adaptation. See more »
