Kristin Kreuk Starring in CW's 'Beauty & the Beast'

Kristin Kreuk is returning to the small screen and heading back to the CW!

The 29-year-old actress, who previously appeared in Smallville, has landed the female lead in the network’s drama pilot Beauty and the Beast, according to Deadline.

The show “centers on Catherine (Kreuk), a tough-minded NYPD Homicide Detective haunted by witnessing her mother’s murder nine years ago and the killers’ quick demise at the hands of a Beast. After years of searching, Catherine finally finds the Beast, Vincent Koslow, the survivor of a military experiment that went disastrously wrong, and becomes the protector of his secret life as a bestial superhero.”

  • Amber

    This isn’t the 1st time she plays a Disney princess. She played Snow White previously. And I can see why, she’s beautiful!

  • Ivy League Student

    Well, I love sushi!

  • kel

    Is this a remake of the B&B show with Linda Hamilton and Ron Perlman?

  • tom

    Now get TOM WELLING as the ‘Beast’!!

  • Sean

    This will get canceled in a month..

  • Hank

    Damn this sounds AWFULLL going by that description. It’s going to get canned for sure.

  • Charles

    She has an Asian look is she half Chinese?

  • Jason

    I’m confused so their going with an Asian chick? Sounds kinda lame tbh. Linda was a badass in that role no one can top that and her chemistry with Ron was wicked.

  • Blackbird

    I love the original Beauty and the Beat Pearlman was badass as they come n Linda well she’s SARA CONNER! I hate the CWB all their shows are aimed at tweens n ppl with NO IQ! this will suck n it will get cancled! I can’t believe there remaking this show .. n she wasn’t a freakin cop she was like a DA or a socialworker or something NOT A COP! already scruing it up wb !

  • Blackbird

    i think she half asian n half russian or something …. but does it matter she’s not Linda!

  • Blackbird

    just imdb’d her Her father is Dutch and her mother is Chinese meaning she is Eurasian

  • Squinty

    The older she gets the more Chinee she looks.

    oh boy

  • Sayer

    I like KK, but why are they remaking this show, and what’s with the fairytale invasion? Emma Watson will play Belle in the live-action version of Beauty and the beast and now this, with 2 snow white movies opening this year, and Grimm and Once Upon a Time on tv.
    Jack, the Giant Killer, Hansel and Gretel, Beastly, Red Riding Hood, etc.

    It’s fairytale overkill.

  • cathvin87

    I like Kristen but from the pilot script I’ve read this reboot is definitely not like the original -It should not have been promoted as such -While it is a beauty & beast type themed show, they shouldn’t have named the main characters Catherine & Vincent -I had high hopes for a B&B remake, but I wanted it to be more like the original with all the romance & fantasy -I see none of that in this reboot, especially with the character of Vincent, who was once a unique, mysterious being with a gentle soul -Now he’ll be a genetically altered hairy human super soldier? -I honestly thought the script was a joke & not authentic -I am truly disappointed that it was true
