Once again, Guy Fieri has proved that he is pretty bad for everything. Sure, his proposal to go to the studio with Lil Nas X was never really realized, but the Mayor of Flavortown could move on to bigger and better things. What could be better than Lil Nas X, are you asking? How about playing in a new live action version of The Little Mermaid ?
Right. Disney's upcoming project is about to hit the bomb (as shown by who they chose as the show's director) and, according to People, Guy Fieri is trying to get fans involved in the action thanks to some of the creative Disney fans.
Last week @domcorona went on Twitter to suggest that the Food Network stars are playing nothing but … Ursula. Do you see the similarity, right? He already has the hair and purple is obviously his color.
Within a day of the original tweet, Fieri (apparently) joined. His reaction to the excitement of the fans was of course to the point.

Well, we know that he is not necessarily Disney's point of contact, but I'm telling you, the man is ready to take on this role. Give him a chance, Disney! In other words, if you've already found your Ursula (it sounds like Melissa McCarthy is being considered), you know Guy is a very versatile actor. As a fan emphasized, Fieri's latest profile picture suggests that Triton might well suit him as well.
Although we are in complete agreement, it should be noted that the "giant fork" is actually called "Dinglehopper" (thank you @xfsista ), which will be very important for Guy to know when he will starts his audition. Just saying.
