Rumor Time: Ryan Gosling May be Our Disney Beast
Word on the internet is that that live action Beauty and the Beast remake has found its Beast in Ryan Gosling. Now, this news is still in the Unconfirmed Rumor phase, so it could go the way of Tatiana Maslany in Star Wars. Keep that in mind.
This seems like an odd choice, doesn’t it? The Beast is a whirlwind of emotions (mostly rage), while Baby Goose is known mostly for his expressionless, taciturn, beautiful stubbly ways. Whenever he does break out of that, I always get an image of a child throwing a tantrum. I say that as a total fan, but I can’t be alone in this, right?
Plus, he and Emma Watson (who will play Belle) seem like a strange pairing. It’s not their 10-year age difference; by Hollywood standards, she’s practically too old for him. I just have trouble imagining them sharing space.
Still, this is a musical— it looks to be a straight-up Disney remake. And we know Ryan Gosling can sing. So that’s a good fit. Hopefully he’ll sing “goofy.”
