The ‘Alienist: Angel of Darkness’ cast open up about their friendship & parallels between the show and modern society
The cast of the 1890s-set drama “The Alienist”, Luke Evans, Dakota Fanning and Daniel Bruhl, say the second season of the psychological thriller felt “incredibly current” in light of recent events involving police brutality.
Luke Evans and Josh Gad are set to reprise their roles from 2017’s “Beauty and the Beast” for a prequel series at Disney Plus, Variety has confirmed.
Evans will star as Gaston with Gad returning as LeFou. The untitled project, which is currently in early development, would be a musical like the film with Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz set to co-write and serve as showrunners. Gad would also serve as co-writer on the project, with he, Horowitz, and Kitsis also executive producing. ABC Signature Studios, where Horowitz and Kitsis are under an overall deal, would produce.

I remember once spending a Christmas with a friend’s family as our guests and as they arrived the electricity went off in the house. I had to phone the next door neighbour (who’d gone to his parents’ home with his wife and kids) and ask: “Please can I let myself in and cook my turkey in your oven?” In the spirit of things, he said: “Of course.”
My very first memory is of Marie biscuits. They were in a green packet, thin and like Rich Tea biscuits but with more writing. We’d always have butter on top. It’s a very Welsh thing, putting butter on your sweet Maries.
I was born on Easter Sunday and raised as a Jehovah’s Witness, by my mother, a housewife and sometime house cleaner, and my father, a bricklayer and great general builder, in a village [Aberbargoed] in the Rhymney Valley where the colliery had recently closed. The dining table was in the middle of the narrow galley kitchen, which led to our downstairs bathroom. We always ate there and Dad would start every meal with a prayer, based on what had been going on that day. Very personal, individual and sometimes sad.

The first single from Luke Evans’ upcoming debut album At Last dropped October 11. The stage and screen star sings a cover of Pat Benatar’s “Love Is a Battlefield” in a music video below.
“The lyrics to the songs mean something different to everyone, especially in this day and age, when some people are not allowed to love each other,” said Evans of the song. “For me, it’s about fighting through the pressures of love and coming out of the other end with it intact.”
At Last will be released November 22. The West End alum (Rent, Miss Saigon, Piaf) and Beauty and the Beast star will cover a dozen songs on his album, including “Bring Him Home” from Les Misérables, “If I Could Turn Back Time” by Cher, and Lady Gaga’s “Always Remember Us This Way” from A Star is Born.
