And now, whether or not Disney wants him, Zandi said he's not going to campaign for the role. He's not going to post an audition tape on YouTube, he's not going to show up at Bruckheimer's house. He's convinced the studio and the director don't have fans' interests at heart and aren't concerned with depicting the "Prince of Persia" hero as accurately as possible. But if they were to offer him the part, well, that would be a different story.
"I will accept the role from Jerry Bruckheimer when he decides to meet the demands of the fans. I just want to give the fans what they want," Zandi said.
He just hopes that Disney and Bruckheimer don't pick the wrong guy for the role.
"When I look at this character, I see someone very strong, very confident. I don't mean to put anybody down, but Orlando Bloom comes across as a little weak, a little effeminate," he said.
