Wow, how times have changed!
A Live-Action Beauty & The Beast Is Coming To Theaters — And We've Got The Perfect Casting Options For The Film! (You're Welcome, Disney!)
A tale as old as time…
Beauty and the Beast!!!!
Not only is it coming, but it's confirmed that Bill Condon, who was the genius behind Twilight: Breaking Dawn, will be directing the film!!
Guess Disney doesn't care that there's a Guillermo Del Toro live-action BatB titled Beast already in the works.
But the question that remains is who will play Belle? Beast? Lumiere? Cogsworth?!?! GASTON?!?!
Well, Disney, we did you a favor and narrowed down the actors and actresses who should be your top picks..
There are a lot of actresses for Belle, but we think they should choose from these talented babes…
Emma Watson or Emilia Clarke would be perfect!
But then there's also Natalie Dormer or even Leighton Meester!
Oh no, but what about Margot Robbie or Hailee Steinfeld!
On the younger side, there's also Bella Thorne or Maia Mitchell!
SO MANY OPTIONS! But, what about the Beast?
Well..there's OF COURSE Hugh Jackman or Charlie Hunnam!
Or if they want a super hunky, super muscly Beast, they could go with Idris Elba or Jason Momoa aka Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones!
As for the characters of Lumiere & Cogsworth?
Sascha Baron Cohen as Lumiere and Jonah Hill as Cogsworth? Hilarious!
Jean Dujardin and Josh Gad could bring amazing things to the roles!
As for Mrs. Potts? The original actress Angela Lansbury is the top runner (even if she's a little old for the role now, but COME ON!), but after her we would LOVE to see Octavia Spencer!
And for Chip? Hayden Byerly of The Fosters or Quvenzhané Wallis would be too perfect for words!
Even if they DON'T take our suggestions for anything else, we have three absolutely PERFECT casting choices for the following roles…
Joe Manganiello as Gaston could not BE more suited for the role.
Babet aka the sensual feather duster is literally a role MADE for Sofia Vergara!
What do YOU think Perezicious readers? Agree? Disagree? What are YOUR suggestions!
