Terry Crews knows what he wants to do next!

The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star is campaigning for his next film role as King Triton, Ariel’s dad, in Disney’s forthcoming live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid. 

But the 50-year-old actor went about sharing his wishes with the world in the most hilarious way — posting an image of himself photoshopped onto King Triton’s fishtail while also holding a trident and floating in front of the kingdom of Atlantica on social media. 

He even created two hashtags to help promote his campaign — #ArielsGotTerry and #AmericasGotTerry.

It looks like fans could be for Crews to get the part if the number of likes the image garnered on Twitter and Instagram are any indication — just in case you were wondering that number currently stands at half a million likes total!

Already in talks to be cast in The Little Mermaid, are Awkwafina, Jason Tremblay and Melissa McCarthy, who, should they join will star as Scuttle, Flounder, and Ursula, respectively.
