Melissa McCarthy hints she'll be Ursula in Disney's 'Little Mermaid'
Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images for ELLEHOLLYWOOD, Calif. - Melissa McCarthy is obviously interested in taking on the role of Ursula in Disney's live-action "Little Mermaid," winking at the camera when Jimmy Kimmel asked her if she'd be playing the part. The actress addressed the rumors during her Monday night appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" after discussing her worst date ever and how her elderly father has started trapping squirrels in his car. "I read that you are going to be a part of the live-action remake of 'Little Mermaid,'" Kimmel asked. Her only worry was embarrassing her kids with her portrayal of the sea witch, who grants a mermaid (Ariel) a wish at great cost.
Melissa McCarthy might play Ursula in "Little Mermaid' remake
It seems that Melissa McCarthy is one step closer to playing the iconic sea witch Ursula in Disney's live-action remake of "The Little Mermaid." Variety was told by sources that McCarthy is in the early stages of being cast as Ursula, one of the all-time great Disney villans. The original 1989 film is beloved by many generations, so it makes sense Disney would choose "The Little Mermaid" as its next live-action remake after doing "Beauty and the Beast," "Aladdin" and the highly anticipated "Lion King" still on the way, which will hit theaters July 19. We're sure that the two-time Oscar nominee will bring her comedic chops to the villianess role. There's no word on when "The Little Mermaid" will hit theaters, but we're guessing it will be a couple years.
