'Beauty & The Beast' Adds New Character for Stanley Tucci!

The casting for the upcoming live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast is nearly complete and a brand new character has been added to the mix!

Stanley Tucci, who you will know as Caeser Flickerman from The Hunger Games films, has been given the role of Cadenza, who was not seen in the animated musical.

Cadenza is “the grand piano, a new character to the realm who is described as a neurotic maestro,” according to Variety. Stanley is no stranger to playing over the top characters so we can’t wait to see what Cadenza will be like!

This is expected to be one of the final casting announcements, though we still wonder who will be playing Chip.
