RUMOR: Ryan Gosling Offered Beast Role In Disney's 'BEAUTY AND THE BEAST' Opposite Emma Watson
According to The Tracking Board, Disney is looking for their male lead in Beauty And The Beast. They are claiming that the studio has offered the lead role of Beast to Ryan Gosling who would be starring alongside Emma Watson who is confirmed for the role of Belle.
I'm labelling it as a rumor because every studio offers roles to Ryan Gosling and most of them never come together, recently he was linked for lead roles in Doctor Strange, Suicide Squad and even Sinister Six seemingly turning them all down. This could also be a case of they want him but he has zero clue the offer is even happening.
I find it hard Gosling would cave-into a Disney production while trying his best to remove himself from his Mickey Mouse Club days by taking serious indie projects, he's also been very cautious to stay clear of these types of movies.
This couldn happen but you'd think Disney would want an actor closer to Watson's age, even if it's Gosling it would be a bit creepy.
