Announcements have been made regarding who will star opposite Emma Watson when she plays Princess Belle in Disney’s live action remake of the classic “Beauty and the Beast”. Her new cast mate, better known as Dan Stevens, is billed to play the Beast. Stevens, who is a Brit, also starred in the hit British drama series “Downtown Abbey”. These two talented actors already share their English upbringings and soon they will be sharing space on the big screen along with another bloke from across the pond, Luke Evans, who will play Gaston. With this remarkably picture-perfect cast set for “Beauty and the Beast”, Disney will definitely be sitting pretty upon its release.
