live action beauty and the beast coming who should be cast

A tale as old as time

Disney has JUST announced that following the success of Maleficent, they're bringing another classic to the big screen in live-action form and it's none other than…

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..

Find out if you agree or disagree with our choices…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Dr. Seuss, Roald Dahl, and Russell Brand?

The English funny-man has just announced some exciting news, and it was not what we were expecting!

He admitted:

Unless they nominate you for Villain of the Year! Seriously, Miley Cyrus?! As bad as gay-hating Vladimir Putin? WTF??
