Disney is gearing up for a live-action 'Little Mermaid' movie. 

According to Variety, Melissa McCarthy is in talks to take on the role of Ursula. 

I love Melissa and all but I think they need to re-think this casting. Melissa is goofy and funny and Ursula is scary and evil! 

I'm not the only one that thinks this is a bad call. Social media went crazy when this announcement was made. Some suggested singer Lizzo to play the role while others were suggesting Tituss Burgess, especially because the animated Ursula was inspired by actress Devine.
