What’s getting everyone excited today? There’s a rumour flying around Hollywood that Ryan Gosling could star as the Beast in Disney’s upcoming live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast

Is the fact it could be Ryan Gosling particularly great? Yes, because it’s Ryan Gosling: brooding, feminist, animal-loving actor extraordinaire from Crazy Stupid Love, The Notebook and Drive.

This pretty much sums up how the world feels about him…

Tell me more! The ‘news’ first turned up on industry website the Tracking Board. If it’s true, Gosling will be starring alongside Emma Watson, whose role in the film as Belle has already been confirmed, generating enough excitement to prove that the internet loves the Harry Potter actress as fiercely as it adores Ryan Gosling…



Disney are transforming lots of their Disney animations into live-action these days, aren’t they? Well noticed! Beauty and the Beast – with Watson and maybe Ryan Gosling – will add to a growing stable of Disney’s live-action remakes of its own cartoon movies.

Recently they did Maleficent (which was based on Sleeping Beauty), 2015 brings us Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella with Downton Abbey’s Lily James, plus there’s Jon Favreau’s forthcoming The Jungle Book starring Bill Murray as singing bear, Baloo.

So I’m guessing people are pretty excited about the rumour of a Watson-Gosling pairing?

They seem to be quite interested…
