Could Ryan Gosling ever pull off a  role as a beast…. the best in Beauty and the Beast to be more precise. 

That is the rumour currently circulating after last week’s news that Emma Watson had been cast to play Belle in Disney’s new live-action version of the fairytale. 

The Tracking Board has reported that the in demand actor is being courted for the male lead and may have already been offered the role. 

Our next thought is who will play Gaston, Lumiere, Cogsworth, Mrs Potts and of course Chip!

It of course comes after the live-action version of Alice in Wonderland, the yet to be released Cinderella and a version of The Jungle Book rumored to be released in 2016.  

Will it live up to the 1991 Disney release or can that kind of magic only exist in animation?
