Thanks!  I guess I'd pick Rebel Wilson, Meryl Streep, or Taraji Henson.

Either Helena (for her villainous performances) or Katy Perry (for singing).

NDbportmanfan 1 and Rowan,
your suggestions are great and I would add them, but right now this poll has the same amount of choices as my Ariel casting poll - I know it sounds silly but I'd like to keep them "even."  Sorry.  :)  But those choices are great and thank you for them!!!  Again, sorry.

NarniaisAwesome,

I fully appreciate that you prefer symmetry with your Ariel poll. However, if you decide to break that symmetry, I have an off-the-wall suggestion:

Tyler Perry as his character Madea

The character Madea is manipulative as Ursula albeit campy.

From the Greek Μηδεια (Medeia), possibly meaning either "to ponder" or "cunning". In Greek mythology Medea was a sorceress from Colchis (modern Georgia) who helped Jason gain the Golden Fleece.

Thanks, but I guess I really like eveness, lol...
But that is awesome!!!  That would work if it was a light-hearted movie; I don't know what Disney is planning.  That's too funny!  Great idea!
