Since the whole Emma Watson news came out I have been trying to think about who would be able to play Beast and who would be able to play Gaston for the movie. It is really a good question right? I feel like there are just so many good candidates that could play either. So I have put together a list of the top five actors that could potentially play each role. I have not put into consideration on if they can sing because I simply do not care!
Top Five For Beast
Basically they have to be a real son of a bitch, then learn how to love. That is how I think about Beast. A real asshole, then Belle shows him what love is and he feeds birds out of his hands and stuff.
5. Garret Hedlund
Garret is absolutely beautiful, he can sing, and he has a really deep voice. I don’t think he would ever do a movie like this since he turned down The Hunger Games, but a girl can dream, right? Plus he is older than Emma but not like creepy dude older, just a little bit older.
4. Jared Padalecki
I have said it once I will say it again, Jared Padalecki doesn’t get enough credit for being one of the hottest dudes ever. Neither does his costar Jensen Ackles but right now let’s focus on Jared. He has the long hair, he is a giant, and I think that the ‘Supernatural’ fandom would buy out every theater before the movie was even released. So guaranteed box office blow out. I don’t think there is a shot in hell for this casting to happen but again, a girl can dream.
3. Taylor Kitsch
Can Taylor sing or dance? I have no idea but I don’t really care. I watched him in ‘Friday Night Lights’ long enough to know that he can act. He can be both a bad boy and he can be vulnerable. I will pay for him to take lessons to sing and dance!
2. Chris Hemsworth
I don’t think I even need to go into detail for this one. I mean, just look at the man.
First things first he’s the realest. I don’t know where I was going with the Iggy lyric but I felt like it worked for this. I think that he would one of the hottest Beasts in the world. Disney should really look into hiring him as Beast, then work their way down this list. Alexander is gorgeous, he has a sexy voice, and I am just going to assume he can sing!
Top Five For Gaston
Gaston is your typical jerk who doesn’t like women reading and wants to marry Belle real bad.
5. Ian Somerhalder
This is three hundred percent based on his eyes and his eyes alone. Ian is too skinny to play Gaston but maybe if he gained about thirty pounds of muscle he would be the best Gaston ever!
4. Joe Manganiello
I love Joe, I think that he is a great actor that is outshined by her personal life. Personal life of course being Sophia Vergara, but hey as long as they are happy! He is built like Gaston and I am guessing he could act real cocky about those gorgeous looks. I wanted to put him down for Beast too, so really either role, just cast Joe. Okay? Okay.
3. Chris Pratt
I feel like Chris Pratt is going to be in a ton of movies in the next two years so why not just add him to this one?! No, I think that Chris could take the role of Gaston and make it really hilarious. Never going to happen but hey, just my opinion.
2. Stephen Amell
Almost every single person I talk to loved ‘Arrow’ so why not put the hot star on the big screen? He is totally gorgeous and that is really all that matters. I love him. He has blue eyes, dark hair, basically perfect. Stephen Amell for Gaston! Stephen Amell for Beast! Stephen Amell for president!
1. Tyler Hoechlin
Tyler has come a long way from being on ‘7th Heaven’ and I think that he also deserves his shot on the big screen. Plus him and Emma together, well her basically pushing him away, it would be a nice thing to watch. He could probably play Beast too, he is just gorgeous and people should know more about that and his face in general.
So that is my pointless list of people that should play those roles, if you agree let me know! If you don’t agree, let me know!
