YOU WANT YOUR MTV, AND PARAMOUNT+ HAS IT

21 Times New Gaston Luke Evans Was As A Specimen, Yes, Intimidating

Sometimes, you just have to.

When Emma Watson was cast as Belle in the upcoming live-action remake of "Beauty and the Beast," our number one question -- yes, before "who is going to play the Beast?" -- was "who is going to play Gaston?"

Well, as of Wednesday (March 4), that number one question has been answered. Variety reports that Luke Evans will play Gaston, which is perfect, since we have 21 solid times that he was already Gaston IRL -- or, you know, in movies. Same thing.

Anyway, here's your proof that Luke will be the perfect Gaston:

No one's slick as Luke Evans.

There's no one as burly and brawny. As you see, he's got biceps to spare. Not a bit of him's scraggly or scrawny... however, ev'ry last inch of him is... not...covered with hair.
