Who Will Play Ariel's Prince In 'Little Mermaid'?

Tell the the singing sea creatures to keep it down for a second, because you're going to want to hear this: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Richard Curtis is "in talks" to write and direct the live-action remake of The Little Mermaid. You mean to tell me the man who wrote the perfect movie that is Notting Hill could be at the helm of The Little Mermaid? You better believe I am crossing my fingers for this one. Oh, but that is not the only piece of exciting news that dropped: THR reports that Chloe Moretz is set to play Ariel in the adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale. YESSS. Moretz is everything, Moretz will slay this, I could not be more thrilled with this casting choice, etcetera.

Speaking of casting choices, this Q just popped in my mind: who will be picked to star opposite the great Moretz? Who will be selected to bring Prince Eric (aka one of the hottest Disney princes of all time) to life? Sadly, I do not have the answer. But do you know what I do have? A list of super handsome, super charming, super talented stars who could totally play Prince Eric. As far as I'm concerned, every last one of these gentlemen would make a great Prince Eric.
