    14 Reasons We're Excited To See Luke Evans As Gaston

    He's a great actor and he's incredibly hot.

    Now that Emma Watson has confirmed via Twitter that Luke Evans will play Gaston in Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast we can officially celebrate!

    Bonjour Gaston! ❤️ Welcome! #BeautyAndTheBeast

    Luke is absolutely perfect for this role for a myriad of reasons.

    1. He looks good in leather.

    Gaston seems like the kind of dude who owns really tight leather pants.

    2. He can sing.

    And if Disney stays true to the original movie, then Luke's going to have to sing.

    3. He can do this with his face.

    Not sure what's going on here, don't really care because he's beautiful and that's all that matters.

    4. Because he looks great in this purple suit.


    If he looks good in this, he'll look good in red and yellow.

    5. Glasses look great on him.

    This has nothing to do with Gaston, this is just a gratuitous picture.

    6. He's suave as fuck.

    Add a dash of evil and you've got Gaston.

    7. He looks great with long hair.

    He'll do that Gaston low-hanging ponytail justice.

    8. He looks great shirtless.

    There's a scene where Gaston opens his shirt, he's pretty ripped for a cartoon, hopefully Disney doesn't cut this scene.

    9. He's just as hot in black & white.

    There's no way in hell this movie will be in black & white, but if it is he'll still look perfect.

    10. He's classy even in the most casual situations.

    He may be in a tee shirt and jeans, but look at how he holds that wine glass.

    11. He also looks next-level classy drinking champagne.

    Will there be alcohol in this film?

    12. He looks good in a scarf.

    Gaston probably wears a cravat but Luke Evans in a scarf is close.

    13. Because look at that damn face.
