As much as we would all love for the character of 'Genie' in the live action remake of Aladdin to be played by Robin Williams, we know its not possible.
So we agree that the best alternative will be Will Smith. According to The Independent, Smith is in talks to play Genie in Disney's reboot of Aladdin that will directed by Guy Ritchie.
