One of the regulars on the hit PBS/BBC period drama “Downton Abbey” is Disney’s new “Beast” in the live-action update on “Beauty and the Beast.”

CNN reports that Dan Stevens, known for playing Matthew Crawley on “Downton,” has been cast in the part opposite Emma Watson, who is set to play Belle.

“The film, to be directed by Bill Condon (‘Gods and Monsters,’ the final two ‘Twilight’ films), also named its Gaston, the conniving lout who pursues Belle, though she resists his advances. He’ll be played by Luke Evans, a musical theater veteran who starred as Bard the Bowman in Peter Jackson’s ‘Hobbit’ films,” CNN reports.
