Ian McKellan is Set to Play Cogsworth the Clock

With production set to begin later this year for a March 17, 2017 release date, the casting for the live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast is picking up steam. We already have confirmed Emma Watson as “Beauty”, with Luke Evans playing “Gaston”, and Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) as “Beast”.  Now, it is being confirmed that Ian McKellan will join the star-studded cast as “Cogsworth”.

Emma Thompson recently joined the cast as “Mrs. Potts”, with Kevin Kline set to play Belle’s father “Maurice”, and Josh Gad as the evil minion “LeFou”.

In the 1991 Disney animated feature film, Cogsworth was the Beast’s butler who was turned into a clock once the curse transformed everyone in the castle.
