The cast went though several changes. was originally cast in the lead role. He was replaced by Nicholas Hoult after Efron dropped out. And, was originally cast but she dropped out and was replaced by Felicity Jones.
I am loving this cast, especially two greats playing opposite bad guys, Anthony Hopkins & Ben Kingsley…I mean come on, they both hold the title “Sir”.
You also have two up and coming actors in both Felicity Jones and Nicholas Hoult. I do believe that Felicity is a great actress and Nicholas is just mediocre. But they are both slated in two of this year’s most highly-anticipated movies, with Felicity starring in and Nicholas reprises his role as Beast in .
