Huge news for Ryan Gosling fans everywhere

So we’re just about getting over the news that Emma Watson has been cast as the beautiful Belle in the upcoming live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast.

Now, our excitement levels are at fever pitch after hearing who is in contention for the role of the Beast – none other than our favourite dreamboat, Ryan Gosling!

How amazing would this pairing be?!

While we can barely contain our excitement at the prospect of the handsome 34-year-old playing this poor tortured soul, it seems the internet firmly agrees with us!

“Ryan Gosling and Emma Watson in Beauty and the Beast…best believe I’ll slide on into theatres for that,” wrote one Twitter user.

Meanwhile, another captured our feelings perfectly, writing (in all caps lock, might we add): “Oh my god, Ryan Gosling has been approached to play the Beast in Beauty and the Beast with Emma! Oh my god, yes please!”

What are your thoughts on Ryan potentially playing this role? Do you think he’ll make a good partnership with Emma?
