Former "Angel" star Julia Benz told Sci Fi Wire about her role in the forthcoming "George of the Jungle 2". I play George’s wife, Ursula," Benz said in an interview. "I was looking for something a little more lighthearted for my next project, so that’s what I chose to do."

Benz added, "George of the Jungle 2 is a comedy. I’d played these very dark and emotional characters for the last three years, and Ursula isn’t dark and emotional. It’s hard not to take home the roles where your character’s heart is ripped out and stepped on. It really is. So this was just fun, and it got me back into what I originally got into this business to do, which was comedy. We did it for Disney, and we shot it in Australia. Ursula is funny. She’s not the straight man. In the story, she and George [now played by Chris Showerman] have been married for five years, and they have a son. So it’s about how George balances being king of the jungle with being a husband. It’s in the same vein of the first one, with very broad comedy and a comic-book look to it. I got to fall a lot and do these pratfalls. I was very excited. Right now it’s up in the air how they’re going to release it," on TV, as a DVD/video or perhaps even theatrically.
