Emma Watson has captured the role of Belle, the book loving, Gaston avoiding brunette we’ve grown to know and love in the Disney animated classic, Beauty and the Beast. Now, Watson has taken to Twitter to welcome her newly cast co-stars in the upcoming, live-action Disney film.
Luke Evans (The Hobbit) has been cast as Gaston, the muscled, egotistical villain who tries to win Belle’s affections. Yeah, not happening Gaston. Evans is an experienced musical theater actor.
Dan Stevens has been cast as the Beast. Stevens, who plays Matthew Crawley in Downton Abbey, has all of the ingredients of a Disney leading man. The princely-turned-beastly character was originally voiced by Robby Benson in the 1991 animated film.
