In the upcoming Beauty and the Beast, Gad plays the conniving Le Fou, the mindless lackey of Luke Evans' villainous Gaston. While he may play the Beast's on-screen enemy, Gad had nothing but praise for co-star Dan Stevens, who plays the film's eponymous hirsute hero.
"Dan's performance is just incredible," Gad, 35, marveled. "[He] gives it a gravitas that I think just grounds the entire movie."
Gad went on to say that the upcoming live remake isn't looking to replace the beloved original, but rather "builds on the animated classic."
"It evolves [from the original], like Jungle Book evolved from the source material, like Cinderella evolved from the source material," Gad shared. "But it goes further into the trenches in terms of the mythology and in terms of the characters."
