Now that the gorgeous Gugu Mbatha-Raw has been cast as Plumette in Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast...
Someone equally as breathtaking MUST be cast as Lumière.
1. Pio Marmai
Pio is a comedic French actor known for his roles in A Happy Event and I Kissed a Girl. Also, look at that torso.
2. Nicolas Duvauchelle
Nicolas is most-known for his role in the French television show Braquo, a crime drama. You can catch all of his smoldering looks on Hulu.
3. Olivier Martinez
Kylie Minogue's former lover and Halle Berry's current husband, Olivier Martinez has been making American films sexy AF since 2002's Unfaithful opposite Diane Lane.
4. Omar Sy
Omar should be familiar to U.S. audiences if they saw him as Bishop in X-Men: Days of Future Past.
5. Aurélien Wiik
This cute actor made headlines in 2010 when he began a short-lived romance with Lindsay Lohan.
6. Jean Dujardin
Winner of the Academy Award for Best Actor for his work in The Artist, Jean has been relegated to a series of unmemorable roles ever since. Lumière could be his time to shine (look at that pun).
7. Gilles Marini
Gilles appeared most recently on ABC Family's Switched at Birth, where he spoke to his deaf daughter using sign language and romanced women with the language of love.
8. Stanley Weber
Stanley starred in the French version of Borgias, which chronicled the rise of Borgia family during the Renaissance.
9. Hugo Becker
Hugo Becker played Prince Louis on Gossip Girl, who was as equally villainous as he was a horrible character, and somehow that doesn't diminish his hotness.
10. Clément Sibony
Clément's most recent introduction to U.S. audiences was in 2014's The Hundred-Foot Journey starring Helen Mirren and Manish Dayal.
11. Vincent Cassel
Let's not count out a silver fox in the role of Lumière! Daddy Vincent has played bad boys in Ocean's Twelve and Black Swan.
12. Romain Duris
Romain has been heating up French movies for over 20 years, in a wide range of comedic and dramatic roles. He's been compared to Ryan Gosling and Joseph Gordon-Levitt by the Los Angeles Times, which means U.S. audiences don't even know what they're missing.
