Beauty and the Beast, anyone?

ABC's new hit show, Once Upon A Time, has once gotten dipped into the Lost pool, snagging Aussie Emilie de Ravin to play Belle from the classic fairy tale.

Fellow Lost alum and New Zealander Alan Dale is also on the show.

De Ravin will be appearing late in the season but there is no word if Belle will join by the Beast. Belle will have a connection to Rumplestiltskin in the show that turns enchanting fairy tales into real life.

The evil Gaston is also set to appear so let's hope the Beast appears as well to rescue the damsel in distress!

    I dont know if you actually watch the show or not but there is no "rescuing the damsel in distress" plus they always show life before the curse so im guessing they'll show beast

    "ABC's new hit show, Once Upon A Time, has once gotten dipped into the Lost pool" does not make sense. Do you have an editor at all? Come on, you get paid for this!
    Considering they're layering Easter Eggs from Lost into the show and even have a section on the website about it, it's not exactly shocking. But once again, research.

    Bring it!

    Technically Alan Dale is not on the show…YET. He has been cast as Charming's father, but has not, as of yet, appeared on the show!

    Awesome show, hope it doesn't get the V treatment and gets cancelled during a fucking CLIFFHANGER!!!

    how bout giving new actors a chance? same ones getting the jobs while 1000s wait tables.

    oh I hope Gaston is NOT on the show or Disney will sue their asses….Gaston was a character made up by Disney for the film…he wasn't in the original Beauty and the Beast fable.

    What's up with the stupid pose and the lips ? Wow, why can't we have a show on tv nowadays without someone from England or Australia with their stupid accents. Hire an American actor that is out of work. Let them go back to their countries and find jobs over there.

    The show is on ABC, which is owned by Disney. I seriously doubt they would sue one of their own companies for using one of their characters.
