August 24, 2022 Danny DeVito took part in WIRED interview autocomplete, answering the Internet’s burning questions about him, his career and more. One such request asked if he would appear in the live-action film Hercules, and his response was invaluable. “I am Hercules Live,” he said with a smile as he flexed his biceps and then spoke a few words to those behind the project if they didn’t invite him. fans are lobbying for him to play Phil in the upcoming movie there will also be some complaints if he doesn’t end up getting the gig.
On the other hand, not everyone agrees with the idea of DeVito returning as Phil in the Hercules reboot. Some fans consider Josh Gad a worthy replacement, especially after his role as Olaf in the Frozen films and his role as LeFou in the Beauty and the Beast adaptation. However, as it turns out, Gad himself does not want to become the next Phil. Rather, he believes that DeVito is the only person capable of doing justice. “Lol. No. No. No. I won’t play Phil. There is only one person who should play Phil and his name is @DannyDeVito.” Gad tweeted in 2020..
We’ll have to keep a close eye on the Hercules casting news, but you’ve heard it loud and clear from Danny DeVito himself, Disney. It would be better if he starred in the film as Phil, Hercules himself or someone else.
