What Would Have Made Beauty & The Beast Better? Idris Elba

What Would Have Made Beauty & The Beast Better? Idris Elba”

In an interview with People, Idris Elba revealed that he had auditioned for the Beauty and the Beast live-action remake, which was released earlier this year.

While on the subject of musicals, Elba said, "I honestly love musicals".

Since appearing in awesome television series such as Luther and The Wire, Idris Elba has carved a name for himself as a fan favorite actor. I auditioned for Beauty and the Beast. He revealed that he desperately wanted the part of Gaston: "I called and said, 'Listen, I want in!' So somewhere they have a tape of me singing". And we're going to need to see that pronto. As for whether the actor resents Luke Evans for getting the role instead, Elba had a cheeky answer.

"No, only a little bit", he said facetiously. "No". Not only does Elba profess a love of musicals, he's actually played the part of "Big Julie" in a theatrical production of Guys and Dolls and actually understudied the actor playing Nathan Detroit at the time.

As it turns out, the role wasn't entirely Evans' for the taking.

"Falling in love while making a movie about falling in love is pretty special", people.com quoted Elba as saying.

Based on this egregious transgression, we expect Disney to make it up to Elba in the near future.

The movie tells the story of a man and a woman, played by Kate Winslet, who get stranded in the wilderness after a plane crash and fall for each other as they struggle to survive. He's already voiced three different characters for the company, including Chief Bogo in Zootopia, Fluke the seal in Finding Dory, and Shere Khan in The Jungle Book.

Elba appears in The Dark Tower, now in theaters.

Elba can next be seen in Thor: Ragnarok on November 2nd.
