Emma Thompson books her best role yet

Emma Thompson is a wonderfully talented actress and a charming woman, capable of doing all sorts of roles. However, she’s just been announced for one that just might be the absolute pinnacle of her entire career. Get ready, folks: she’s going to play Mrs. Potts in the upcoming live-action version of Beauty and the Beast.

This whole thing is probably going to be a mess, but best believe I’m going to watch it. In case you forgot, Emma Watson is playing Belle, Dan Stevens from Downton Abbey will play the Beast and Luke Evans is going to be Gaston. Yasssssss. Also, Kevin Kline was just announced in the role of Belle’s father, Maurice.

Basically, I just need to know who’s going to play Lumiere now. Then this genius will be complete.
