Wowww. We would have been so here for this.

During a recent interview with People's Jess Cagle, Idris Elba revealed he auditioned for the role of Gaston in Disney's live-action adaptation of Beauty & The Beast.

Of course, as we all know now, Luke Evans landed the role instead.

The English actor recalled:

"I honestly love musicals. I auditioned for Beauty and the Beast. I really did, for Gaston. I called and said, ‘Listen, I want in!' So somewhere they have a tape of me singing."

Unfortunately that footage hasn't surfaced — but he joked there aren't any hard feelings toward Evans:

"No, only a little bit. No! I love you Luke, you know that."

Uhh…

Let's get Idris in a musical stat, people!
