Broadway star Jeremy Jordan wants to play a Disney prince

Broadway star Jeremy Jordan is looking to warble the next big Disney ballad.

“Oh, you can tell Disney that,” the Broadway star said at the Monday premiere of “Spinning Gold” when Page Six noted his resemblance to Disney royalty.

“That’d be great. If they wanna, they wanna run up — run that one up the flagpole. That would be wonderful!”

Jordan, who made his Broadway debut in 2009’s “Rock of Ages,” told Page Six that growing up in Texas could be challenging for a boy who liked to sing and it was often assumed that he was gay.

“If you do anything that’s not traditionally masculine then yeah it’s an assumption,” he told us. “And you know, I am not like a super macho person. I tend to try to be authentically and emotionally available. I’m sensitive. So like, if you sing, yeah that’s a thing.”

The “Hanukkah on Rye” star joked that the “odds” of finding women to date “were in my favor in my early years” appearing on Broadway, but added, “I was never really that kind of guy. I was always very much looking for long-term. That was always my vibe.”

Jordan married fellow Broadway performer Ashley Spencer in 2012 and they share a daughter named Clara who is almost 4 years old.

Jordan currently plays Casablanca Records founder Neil Bogart in the new film “Spinning Gold.”

The film, set in the ’70s, follows the late music exec, who launched the careers of such musical acts as KISS, Parliament, Donna Summer, the Village People and the Isley Brothers. Bogart died of cancer in 1982 at age 39.

“He had no business sort of reaching the height that he did,” the “Newsies” star, 38, said. “And it was because he was almost to a fault so ambitious and never took no for an answer.”

Jordan added, “Even through years of strife and anything that would have stopped anyone else, he continued to push through at the risk of his own life at times.

“It takes a very special singular person to get there and not give up on that journey.”

Jay Pharoah, who also stars in the biopic, told Page Six at the Cinema Society screening that he loved filming a movie set in the hedonistic ’70s.

“When the world made sense,” he joked. “Back when the world made sense! As soon as you put on a fro and you put on some bell bottoms, you are that character. It’s not hard to get into character when you do that. I was so happy to be able to go back.”

Other guests at The Roxy event included a battalion of Broadway stars including Shoshana Bean, Lena Hall, Krysta Rodriguez, Orfeh and Andy Karl, along with music royalty Valerie Simpson and The Village People’s Rob Simpson.
