A few weeks ago we shared with you the big news that Emma Watson will play ‘Belle’ in the upcoming live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast! It’s a great land for the role in my opinion, and the general consensus, but the biggest question that remained just who will play the ‘Beast’ to her ‘Beauty’? Well, now we have an answer.
According to Watson’s very own Twitter account, actor Dan Stevens (‘Matthew Crawley’ – Downton Abbey), will be joining the cast as the ‘Beast’!
Well done, Belle, I mean…Emma. Want to know more about the upcoming ‘Beast’? Moviepilot.com has a great article with some insights and snippets on the actor and his brilliant accent. Click that link back there and take a look!
It’s a genius casting for the main male lead, making it 2 for 2 when it comes to this film. Beauty and the Beast will be released sometime in 2016.
