So we already have our Belle:
Hermione Granger Emma Watson!
The question is, who should play the Beast? Idk what they'll do about his "beast"/ugly stage, but let's assume we're casting our ideal for him in hot human form.
Also, who should be Gaston?
The story is set in France but I am assuming that they will all have American or British accents just bc when do we ever see accuracy in that kind of thing?
My top picks:
Jamie Dornan for the beast. No, not clean shaven and with a fake American accent Christian Grey—scruffy, sexy, and Irish-accented like the Fall (and yes, he plays a creepy evil murderer in that, but he's a good looking guy!). I know that the story is not set in Ireland, so maybe he would have to pretend to have some other accent. Idk.
Chris Hemsworth for Gaston. Large and meatheaded-looking, but charming.
