Josh Gad will play LeFou, Gaston’s devoted, bumbling sidekick and minion. Josh Gad was also the voice of Olaf in Disney’s Frozen movie, and will be reprising the role in the new short, Frozen Fever.
Gad is the first American to join the live-action ‘Beauty and the Beast‘ cast so far.
Bill Condon (who directed Breaking Dawn Part 1 and Breaking Dawn Part 2) is directing the live-action retelling of the 1991 animated classic David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman are producing.
So far this cast is shaping up perfectly. ‘Beauty and the Beast‘ is my personal favorite Disney movie, so I was really anxious to see how this cast would come together. I truly don’t have a single complaint. The casting department has a wonderful vision and they’ve done such a great job so far.
Couldn’t be more excited for a movie!
