Josh Gad in Talks for ‘Beauty & The Beast’ Role


Josh Gad is in talks to join Emma Watson and Luke Evans in the upcoming Beauty & the Beast live-action remake.

Gad, the voice of Olaf in Disney’s Frozen, is in final negotiations to return to the studio for the live action take on the classic fairytale.

If he signs on, Gad will play Le Fou, the sidekick of the film’s villain, Gaston – played by Evans.

Harry Potter star Watson has been cast as Belle, while former Downton Abbey star Dan Stevens will play the Beast.

Gad was also part of Disney’s big announcement to shareholders this week that a Frozen sequel is the works.
