It’s a tall order, but can Will Smith pull it off?

Smith is being eyed for a pretty iconic role: the Genie in Disney’s live-action Aladdin. The role, made famous by the late Robin Williams in the 1992 animated version, would be a change of pace for Will, who has been heading more dramatic films as of late.
