FACE of the FUTURE: Aladdin's Jonathan Schwartz
His kinda nerdy, but definitely cute looks caught my eye when I was watching Aladdin. His charming, high energy performance as Aladdin's buddy Omar kept my attention. As it turns out, I had seen Jonathan Schwartz before, twice! Once was the first time I saw Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. He was one of ill-fated "Geek Chorus," eventually cut. To be honest, there was so much going on at that preview, I really don't remember hi, specifically. And he was also on The Amazing Race, pretty much the only reality show I watch consistently. But after Aladdin, I'm pretty sure I won't forget who he is. And I have a feeling this triple-threat Princeton grad (!) is on his way to a very bright future!
