Default Beauty and the Beast... Casting disappointment

Okay, I usually try to steer clear of anything controversial, but it's a suckie Monday and I'm going to rant for a second. Luke Evans is playing Gaston in the new Beauty and the Beast??? What??? Wow! Did they just want a pretty face? I'm not knocking his acting ability (much), but I would never have picked him for that role. I just can't see him as Gaston. Anyone else out there have an opinion?

I think he certainly can pull of the arrogance of Gaston, especially in the clips we've seen so far. But I don't know that he's "beefy" enough.

Maybe someone like Channing Tatum or Chris Pratt, or even Tom Hardy or the Rock, would have given a better image. But I don't know that they could sing.

Channing Tatum would have been great for the dancing aspect, but I agree about the worries over voice. I also have a hard time envisioning him in a villainous role.

Actually, my daughter and I talked about it last night. She also can't see him (Luke)
pulling it off. Her thoughts were that they won't be able to make him "big enough." Our votes went to Patrick Warburton.

(Who doesn't love Kronk? Lol!)

I've never heard of him but he looks a bit skinny though toned...

They should have made it Justin Bieber.

Not because he's in any way great for the role, just because I would want to see him mauled by the Beast.

He was the river barge man in the Hobbit movies, if that helps.

Maybe one of the Avengers would have been the best option - Chris Hemsworth. Huge, arrogant, good looking. Maybe even one of his brothers. I don't know if any of them can sing though. I gues Miley could always teach Luke
