Hugh Jackman's #TBT Is Pure Disney Villainy
Not a bit of him's scraggly or scrawny! And every last inch of him is covered with hair!
Early last year Disney announced that Luke Evans will be playing Gaston in its upcoming live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast — alongside Emma Watson as Belle.
And while Evans is perfectly cast as the smarmy Gaston...
...Hugh Jackman reminded us today with his #TBT pic that perhaps the role should have gone to him.
Yup, that's Jackman dressed up as Gaston, and his resemblance to the character is uncanny. He actually played the character in the Australian production of Beauty and the Beast in 1995.
And in case you wondering whether he still has the chops to play the character, check him out singing "Gaston" alongside Evans on The Jonathan Ross Show.
Oh well, perhaps he can play Gaston's equally smarmy brother in a spin-off film.
Take a trip down memory lane that’ll make you feel nostalgia AF
