Luke Evans to Play Gaston in 'Beauty & the Beast' Opposite Emma Watson!

Luke Evans is in negotiations for the role of Gaston in the upcoming live action version of Beauty and the Beast, Variety reports!

The 35-year-old actor will be playing opposite Emma Watson, who is set to star as Belle.

Luke is no stranger to musicals – he has starred in many West End productions in London, England such as Rent, Miss Saigon, and Piaf. We know he’ll be able to belt out those Gaston tunes with ease!

No official word has been passed down from Disney just yet.

ARE YOU EXCITED to see Luke Evans as Gaston???

    He is too old and looks too old for the role.

  • Moncho Vallejos

    kurdos! Love him in Avenue Q

  • Gabrielle

    Awesome. He definitely has the looks and hes good at playing villains.

  • Batman0829

    Great actor, but he’s too old for Emma. Could’ve gotten a younger actor, or god forbid an older actress. The actress who played his wife in Dracula would’ve been amazing.

  • StJames Jesse

    Woww, perfect choice¡¡¡

  • la__la

    I was thinking the same thing! Emma is okay for Belle but too young for Luke Evans… I think it will be awkward see him,who is 35, trying to seduce her,who is 24,and looks even younger…I wonder who will they choose to play the Prince

  • Pineapple

  • Dee

    sarah gadon! yes! agree! :) love her! canadian treasure. shes gonna be huge one day. (i hope anyway)

  • PeachK

    I agree. I like Luke Evans but he does look a bit older than his age. And Emma looks young for her age.

  • Shenanigans

    i think the casting is perfect.

  • xxx.AIDS.xxx

    the dream team

  • JC

    Yay! Luke has a beautiful voice. He needs to be using it more.

  • xxx.AIDS.xxx

    blehhh

  • luna

    actually i think is a good choice because Gaston look a little bit older than belle, and it will be a good choice to face ryan gosling ..if he could play the beast

  • Lola

    He looks like he could be her father, just why him?

  • vn_102

    This old fag was supposed to be Emma love interest?
    If he’s not gay, it would be so creepy, for young looking girl to be paired up with guy that could pass off to be her dad.

  • vn_102

    Older in older brother sense, not could pass off as father-daughter sense.

    I thought Disney as kiddie movie maker would have more responsible than promoting paedophile tendency, but then again money talks more than common sense.

  • Revengefan0101

    I think Chris Hemsworth would be better. He would just have to dye his hair.

  • luna

    “pedophilia”?! do you really think that kids care about the actors age?

  • vn_102

    Pedophile will rejoice more, that their sick perverted way has more backup in kiddie movie.
    As for kids, they will find someone who looks like Luke remind them of their father who get close to their big sister / big cousin, in wtf way.

  • Missy

    But then he would be more handsome than the beast/prince O_o

  • joele keilso

    Hey faggot, go fuck your daddy.
