OK, the first thing you'll notice about Dan Stevens is that he's not Ryan Gosling. But hey, few are, right?

Now that the dreamy Downton Abbey star has been cast opposite Emma Watson in Disney's live action Beaury And The Beast, it's time we got to know him a little better!
So here it is, what you need to know about the Beast of Stevens:

We may never see Matthew Crawley again, but at least we know the rest of Downton Abbey will be crossing the pond for its fourth season!
Set to premiere on PBS January 5th of next year, the show’s new episodes will run their usual eight week course through late February for what is bound to be an eventful arc.
Ch-ch-check out newly released stills (below)!
With the passing of two beloved characters, the show will feature the remaining Crawleys', particularly Mary's, transition into their new circumstances. ITV revealed:

So long, Matthew Crawley!!
We hardly knew ye!
A spokesperson for ITV's critically adored ensemble drama Downton Abbey officially confirmed Dan Stevens will NOT reprise his role in season four!
Booooo! Ugh! Noooo!
After months of speculation we still don't know precisely why Dan chose not to return, but the news pierces our hearts like a poop-tipped arrow!
He was one of the show's hunkiest men and we can't fathom how the show will go on without the lovable dude!
UK viewers who watched last night's Downton Abbey Christmas special were given at least given an explanation for the character's departure!
U.S. audiences are a season behind so we won't spoil any of the particulars!
Dan may be done with British TV for the time being, but fans can catch him starring in The Heiress with Jessica Chastain on Broadway!

WHAT IS THIS???
It turns out, Matthew Crawley will not be Downton Abbey's new master.
Multiple sources have confirmed that Dan Stevens is not planning to return to Downton Abbey for it's fourth season.
While the majority of the cast have already signed contracts for season 4 and 5, the British actor has not made his return official — and, according to sources, he probably never will.
Dan is currently appearing Broadway in a revival of The Heiress. We were lucky enough to see him on stage, and we have to admit… he's kinda the shit.
However, the fact that metaphorically reached out to the audience and stole still-beating heart from our chest durning his stage performance will NOT stop us from hating him forever if he leaves Downton!
The is an international phenomenon. His leaving will ruin EVERYTHING!
Hopefully Dan comes to his senses and at least comes on for a few episodes. Though, we're not betting on it.
