It’s hard to tell if Gilbert Gottfried‘s truly bitter about not being asked to reprise his role in the “Aladdin” reboot, because the comedian’s response is classic Gilbert — cracking crass jokes.
We got the voice of Jafar’s sidekick parrot, Iago, from Disney’s animated classic and asked if he’d be making a cameo in Guy Ritchie‘s live-action reboot … but no such luck. To add insult to injury, Gilbert tells us producers went out of their way to snub him … yet managed to get Robin Williams in the film.
Yeah … he went there.
Gottfried also predicts it’ll prove to be a big mistake not including him … but he’s got a suggestion for how the filmmakers can make it right.
