Judge for yourself...
Hollywood seems to have entirely dried up the well on fresh ideas, so much so that the 1999 scifi classic Galaxy Quest is being adapted into a TV series. There are no details about the cast or plot yet, but the film version's writer, director, and producer are all on board for the series, so there's hope! But if they can't get Alan Rickman to reprise his role? Why bother?
Variety is reporting that Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games, Captain America) has joined the cast of the upcoming live action Beauty and the Beast. He joins stars Emma Watson, Emma Thompson, and Kevin Kline as a brand new character, a "neurotic maestro" grand piano named Cadenza.
What do you think of the film's inclusion of a new character? Are you excited to see Stanley Tucci join the film?
