Who should play Ursula in 'The Little Mermaid': Lizzo or Lady Gaga?

"The Little Mermaid" is getting the live-action reboot treatment. Fans have strong opinions on who should play the coveted role of Ursula. Lady Gaga is vocal about wanting the gig, but fans are also rallying for singer Lizzo to play the sea witch. Lizzo has the look and personality to land the role. But Ursula was created in the image of a drag queen, and since Disney probably won't cast a queer person for the role, Lady Gaga is the next best thing. Who should play Ursula?

Ursula was the sea witch with a big personality that fans loved to hate. While Gaga is super talented, she just isn't thick enough to play the plus-size witch. Lizzo submitted her audition tape via Twitter, tagged Disney and fans agreed she should play the role. The self-submitted audition tape was such an Ursula move.

Lady Gaga just killed her role in "A Star is Born," so we know she has the acting and musical chops for the role. Out Magazine points out: 

Although she may not be the typical idea of what Ursula looks like, we're willing to bet she has the theatrics to do the role justice. Originally inspired by drag superstar, Divine, many have their hopes on the role going to a drag queen. But since Disney doesn't seem quite ready to embrace quality queer representation, Gaga would certainly be an ideal alternative.
