Ian McKellen To Play Cogsworth in Beauty and the Beast

April 12th, 2015 by Todd Black Comments



You know him for many roles (and probably more to come) but acting legend Ian McKellen has been cast as another iconic character, from what possibly could be another box office smash.

McKellen will be playing Cogsworth in Disney’s upcoming live-action movie of Beauty and the Beast. That’s right, he’s the clock. It’s unsure at the moment how much CGI will be used to turn him into said clock, but we’ll probably find out soon.

Beauty and the Beast is set for a March 17th, 2017 release date.
