Luke Evans Cast As Gaston For Disney's Beauty & The Beast


Actor Luke Evans is reportedly set to play Gaston in Disney’s live-action retelling of Beauty and the Beast.

In the original animated tale, Gaston was the main antagonist who, after failing to win Belle’s affections, wages a war against the Beast and his enchanted castle.

The high-profile role continues Evans' trajectory as an up and coming actor. He previously starred in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Dracula Untold, and Fast and the Furious 6.

Beauty and the Beast, directed by Bill Condon, will also star Harry Potter’s Emma Watson as Princess Belle. It is expected to hit theaters in 2016.
