Given as such, it's no surprise that the comedian is a top contender to play Ursula in Disney's live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid.
On Friday, it was reported that Melissa is in "early talks" with the studio to play the villanious octopus.
The live-action remake is set to feature original songs from the 1989 animated classic, and new songs helmed by Alan Menken and Lin-Manuel Miranda, who is also producing.
However, it wasn't all good news when it came to the potential casting. Several fans called out Disney for missing an opportunity to cast a person of color or someone from the drag community to play the iconic role.
