Once Upon a Time Casts an Alias Alum as Ursula the Sea Witch

Merrin Dungey is everywhere, y’all.

The former Alias actress has guest-starred on everything from Shameless to Trophy Wife to Brooklyn Nine-Nine to Chasing Life in 2014. Next, she'll appear on Once Upon a Time as one of Disney's most well-known villains—The Little Mermaid's Ursula the Sea Witch—according to Entertainment Weekly.

Ursula is just the latest Disney villain to take up residence in Storybrooke. Dungey joins the Once Upon a Time cast alongside Victoria Smurfit, who recently signed on as Cruella de Vil. Meanwhile, Kristin Bauer is set to reprise her role as Maleficent in the second half of the season.

However, Dungey's appearance won't mark the first time Ursula has visited the show; Community star Yvette Nicole Brown voiced the character in a Season 3 episode.

It seems to make sense to me, why they would through three more villains in the mix, like Maleficent,Ursula & Cruella. Here is the wicked witch back to her old wicked ways, because of the most recent course, Not sure, if the wicked witch, will even turn back to being nice. She is so fed up of being a villain, when she was nice, and got no where, and gained even more of a broken heart because it of (Her mother's death, to Robin Hood). I have been waiting Ariel's villain, ever since, she shown her face last season.for Sleeping beauty, and the 101 Datamations, I'm pretty sure, at least pp appeared on the series, season 1, I think; and sleeping beauty appear as well! I love Ursula,"Poor unfortunate souls" was like my favorite song, it still is! IS any of these new villains used to be your favorite, as a child, or now?

Wow, I didn't realize it was her doing the voice last time!

That's nice.
