Stanley Tucci has closed a deal to join the cast of Disney’s live-action retelling of “Beauty and the Beast” starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens.
Tucci will be playing Cadenza the grand piano, a new character to the realm who is described as a neurotic maestro.Hm - "NEW character to the realm." Well this will be interesting.
They already had a Maestro Forte in Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas. (See pic at right.) He wasn't a good guy. I'd be very surprised if he was playing him (though, it would be interesting to have one of the enchanted objects not be on Belle and the Beast's side for the main story, wouldn't it?)
Well, I wasn't expecting that! Quite the star-studded cast, isn't it?
Ewan McGregro is still in negotiations to play Lumiere but the buzz is, it's pretty likely all will fall into place there.
But we still need a Chip!
