Whereas sadly Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives host Man Fieri is joking about his casting as Ursula, I genuinely assume The Ridiculous 6 and Sorry to Trouble You star Terry Crews would make a killer King Triton. If, you recognize, The Darkish Tower and Hobbs & Shaw actor Idris Elba is not up for the half. However let’s get again to the super-serious topic of Man Fieri snagging a job on this new model of The Little Mermaid for a minute. Whereas the function of Ursula appears to be taken by Bridesmaids and Ghostbusters: Reply the Name actress Melissa McCarthy, I see no cause in any way that Fieri could not snag up the function of Prince Eric’s indignant private chef, Chef “Les Poissons” Louis. You already know the one. Seems like good (sufficient) casting to me! Gordon Ramsay and Giada De Laurentiis might work as properly.
