There was a lot of talk for quite some time about the planned live action adaptation of the classic tale Beauty and the Beast, with a number of different stars being linked to possible roles in the movie. English actress Emma Watson had her name thrown around for a while, before it was finally confirmed that the Harry Potter alum had been cast in the role of Belle for the movie.
Emma Watson rose to global superstardom, playing the role of Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movie franchise, where she basically grew up on screen, in front of our eyes, with a number of other young and talented stars. Since the last Harry Potter movie hit the big screen, we have been keeping a close eye on the progress over the young stars and most of them are still doing very well.
Anyway, back to Beauty and the Beast and, since Emma Watson was confirmed as Belle in the film, there have been a number of suggestions as to which actor will play the Beast. Fans of the Harry Potter movies have been calling for a Harry Potter reunion to take place, with a large number of them wanting Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy, to be cast in the role of the Beast.
There were once rumours that Emma Watson and Tom Felton were dating in real life and they would certainly have some great on-screen chemistry, should Tom be cast in the role. While most fans are calling for Felton, there have also been some calling for Daniel Radcliffe to play the Beast, while Harry Styles name has also popped up, as well as Liam Hemsworth. We will just have to wait and see.
Who would you like to see playing the Beast in the live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast?
